Multiple alignments can be displayed in three zoom levels.
The most detailed level shows mismatches and gaps for each alignment. Hovering over the track displays the names of the species on the left.
On the middle level, we can still hover the track to see the species. An alignment on the forward strand is drawn in green, one to the reverse strand in blue.
When we zoom even further out, the alignments are displayed in gray. The more species align to a certain part of the reference sequence, the longer the gray line. Individual species are not displayed anymore.
After this, zooming further out will not display alignments anymore because of performance reasons.
|Gray||mismatch with reference|
|Red||gap in alignment|
|Green||Alignment to forward strand|
|Blue||Alignment to reverse strand|
