2 Installation

pip install msaconverter

There will be a command msaconverter created under the same directory as your pip command.

3 Usage

$ msaconverter usage: [-h] [-i <INFILE>] [-o <OUTFILE>] [-p {fasta,clustal,stockholm,nexus,phylip,phylip-sequential,phylip-relaxed,mauve,maf}] [-q {fasta,clustal,stockholm,nexus,phylip,phylip-sequential,phylip-relaxed,mauve,maf}]

optional arguments: -h, --help show this help message and exit -i <INFILE> input msa file -o <OUTFILE> output msa file -p {fasta,clustal,stockholm,nexus,phylip,phylip-sequential,phylip-relaxed,mauve,maf} input msa format [fasta] -q {fasta,clustal,stockholm,nexus,phylip,phylip-sequential,phylip-relaxed,mauve,maf} input msa format [phylip-relaxed]

Currently I have no plan to publish msaconverter.

However, since msaconverter makes use of Biopython, you should cite it if you use msaconverter in your work:
