Figure 5: Multiple sequence alignment by COBALT of various Cestoda class species. An alignment will display the following symbols denoting the degree of conservation observed in each column.‘*’ indicate that, the residues in that column are identical in all sequences in the alignment 12 is 12.50%. ‘:’ indicate that strongly similar, conserved substitutions have been observed, 4 is 4.17%. ‘.’ indicate that weakly similar, semi-conserved substitutions are observed 1 is 1.04%.
