    Immunology Frontier Research Center, Osaka University, Suita, Osaka, Japan
    Mol Biol Evol 30:772-80. 2013
    ..Some examples incorrectly aligned by MAFFT are also shown to clarify its limitations. We discuss how to avoid misalignments, and our ongoing efforts to overcome such limitations...
