Web-based evolutionary sequence analysis with Wasabi

Multiple sequence alignments and phylogenetic trees form the basis of comparative sequence analyses. Downstream analysis pipelines, however, can easily grow overly complex with each added tool and branching dataset. To address the issue I’m building Wasabi: a web-browser based, graphical environment for evolutionary sequence analysis. Wasabi is designed for joint visualization and analysis of trees and multiple sequence alignments, and incorporates external tools and databases to a coherent analysis platform. My talk will introduce Wasabi as an analysis tool in a public server (, visualization provider for web services, and interactive plugin in scientific publishing.
