DCSE (Dedicated Comparative Sequence Editor) is a multiple alignment editor. It can be used to edit protein, DNA or RNA alignments. The structure of the molecules can be incorporated in the alignment. It is written in C, and it uses dynamic memory for most things. This means you can almost edit any size of alignment with it. It offers lots of features such as color display of characters and structure, automatic alignment relative to sequences already aligned with others, sequence grouping, sequence or pattern searching, marker system and checking of incorporated RNA structure.

tkDCSE is a version of DCSE for X-Windows. It has an easy to use, yet flexible and programmable X-windows interface provided by the Tcl/Tk language. A complete on-line hypertext help system is provided.
