                                 ClustalwCommandline

Command line wrapper for clustalw (version one or two).

http://www.clustal.org/

Example:

>>> from Bio.Align.Applications import ClustalwCommandline
>>> in_file = "unaligned.fasta"
>>> clustalw_cline = ClustalwCommandline("clustalw2", infile=in_file)
>>> print(clustalw_cline)
clustalw2 -infile=unaligned.fasta

You would typically run the command line with clustalw_cline() or via the Python subprocess module, as described in the Biopython tutorial.
