Hi Oskar!
Although I´m not quite experienced in aligning, it´s sure that there must be
something wrong if you even don`t get your original sequence. Perhaps you
try to use smaller parts of your sequence.
Unfortunately, I don`t know this Macaw Program, but perhaps there`s any
possibility for you to work with the Wisconsin Package (GCG, Genetics
Computer Group Inc., Madison, Wisconsi, USA). That will surely do!
