Table 3 Multiple sequence alignment building times

From: DNACLUST: accurate and efficient clustering of phylogenetic marker genes

MSA method Time (sec.) Diameter (DNADIST)
ClustalW 1545.5 0.251
ClustalW -quicktree 87.6 0.264
MUSCLE 197.8 0.198
UCLUST 0.1 0.156
DNACLUST 0.8 0.094
  1. Time spent building a Multiple Sequence Alignment of a sample cluster using different tools, and the diameter of the MSA produced, as reported by DNADIST. The diameter is expected to be less that or equal to 0.10.
