[Bioperl-l] Generating a consensus sequence from a Clustal alignment

Actually, the page you reached at Pasteur is not Pise, but Mobyle (their replacement for the older Pise tools).  The Pise modules were in BioPerl-Run, but they were deprecated a few years ago and removed from the latest BioPerl-Run releases b/c the remote service is no longer active; there is no Perl-based replacement for Mobyle interaction.  

Have you thought about just using the functionality within the Bio::SimpleAlign class to generate the consensus?  I'm pretty sure there are methods in place to do that.
