Program for aligning coding sequences?

> There is MAKEINF

MAKEINF (for "MAKE INFile") reads an amino acid or nucleic acidalignment of the
format of Jotun Hein's ALIGN program (MBE 1989,
6:649-668) and then outputs an aligned set of nucleic acid sequences in
the sequential format used by the PHYLIP package. Please note that if
you don't use ALIGN, you can easily edit your alignments so that they
can be used with MAKEINF.

WHEN do I want to use this program?

It is particularly useful for the analysis of protein-coding genes at
the nucleic acid level.
