MSA4U is a simple visualisation tool for Multiple Sequence Alignments.
Input format: Multiple sequence alignments
or unaligned sequences in fasta format.
Output: MSA plot in vector format (pdf)
In case of unaligned sequences as input msa4u uses MAFFT with --auto option to build MSA.
Source code and documentation are available at the GitHub Page.

msa4u is developed by Artyom Egorov at the Atkinson Lab.
We are open for suggestions of how we can extend and improve msa4u functionality. Please don't hesitate to share your ideas or feature requests.
You can try an example with several protein sequences.
