Example of Intermediate Gap Tolerance

Goal: You want to remove from your alignment all columns that are more than 25% gaps. This is an operation intermediate between stripping and squeezing.

Data: The alignment in the box below contains a single gap in column 2, two gaps in column 3, three gaps in column 4, and all gaps in column 7.

Settings: The tolerance for gaps has been set to 26%, so that column 2, with 25% gaps (1 gap in 4 sequences) will be preserved. Columns 3, 4, and 7 will be removed because they exceed the 26% tolerance level specified when you press the Run button.
