... I am not 100% sure what you are asking for. My interpretation of "matching letters" is that shadingMode="identical" should do the job. If the issue is rather that N is treated like a regular character, my suggestion is simple: replace all N's with dashes. If you need more custom functionality, ...

... Sorry, I cannot determine the source of the problem. Do your sequences contain a character that LaTeX cannot handle? (this is only a wild guess) I suggest you send me the input file and the TeX file via a private message (bodenhofer_at_bioinf.jku.at) and I will try to go deeper into the problem. ...

... I suggest you change output="pdf" to output="tex" and run pdflatex on the resulting file newaln.tex, and look what error message is thrown. Unfortunately, the texi2dvi() function does not convey enough information about what the problem is. ...

... I am not 100% sure, but, as far as I know, LaTeX might have issues with underscores in file names on Windows. Please try a different name of the object without an underscore character and let me know if that fixes the problem. ...

... Yes, it is true that msa() performs a multiple alignment on a set of unaligned sequences. If the sequences are indeed unaligned, there is no way to create a multiple alignment object without alignment. If the sequences are aligned (at least weakly in the sense that they all have the same lengths, ...

... Well, as obvious from your sessionInfo() results, you are using R 3.2.4 which is more than two years old. Since Bioconductor binds releases to the latest R version, you only have Bioconductor 3.3, which includes 'msa' version 1.2.1. The msaConvert() function has been introduced in 'msa' version 1.3. ...

... I have seen such error messages in the past, and the reason was always that the users read the manual of a newer version than they actually used. So, if you have the latest version, this is a new issue that I will be glad to go into. Please provide a minimal example that produces that error along wi ...

... Sorry, but I don't get the question. I don't know RAxML, but it seems this is not an 'msa' issue, but a matter of how RAxML expects information about populations. Once you have found that out, you can simply change the sequence names in the FASTA file containing the alignment (if that is what RAxML ...

... If you do not want to make the extra way via the msaPrettyPrint() function, you can also directly write to a FASTA file in the following way (which is actually what msaPrettyPrint() does internally; suppose 'aln' is an object containing a multiple alignment): writeXStringSet(as(unmasked(aln), "XSt ...

... Thanks for reporting this issue! As far as I can see, my suspicion is indeed the vast amount of data. Actually, ClustalW is not made for such excessive amounts of data. I would rather suggest to use ClustalOmega instead. If that does not work via 'msa' either, maybe the last resort is to use stand-a ...
