Czym jest OPAL?
OPAL is a web application for visualization of optimal alignment algorithms of nucleotide and protein sequences. The project was implemented at the Silesian University of Technology, Department of Automatic Control, Electronics and Computer Science in the academic year 2009/2010. Thesis Supervisor: dr inż. Dariusz Mrozek.
The main objective of the OPAL application is to match nucleotide and amino acid sequences in accordance with algorithms:
- Needleman-Wunsch (original),
- Needleman-Wunsch-Sellers (simplified Needlemana-Wunsch algorithm).
In addition, the application should acquaint you with the theory of matching the nucleotide sequence and amino acids, it also allows to verify knowledge gained by the user.
The OPAL application has been designed so that it is easy to use and user-friendly for those who start their adventure with matching sequences.
