The germline database contains the templates on which sequences are aligned. Germlines can be modified, and, more interestingly, new germlines can be added to the database. This user-modifiable germline database allows grouping germlines in species or project-dependent sets.


The germline database provide the functionality to handle multiple species.

Custom germlines

Users can add custom germlines on which sequences will be aligned and choose which germlines are used for a given analysis.
