The package provices a reimplementation of the Nearest Alignment
Space Termination tool in Python. It was prepared for next generation
Given a set of sequences and a template alignment, PyNAST will align the
input sequences against the template alignment, and return a multiple
sequence alignment which contains the same number of positions (or
columns) as the template alignment. This facilitates the analysis of new
sequences in the context of existing alignments, and additional data
derived from existing alignments such as phylogenetic trees. Because
any protein or nucleic acid sequences and template alignments can be
provided, PyNAST is not limited to the analysis of 16s rDNA sequences.
