We have improved SATe since it was developed.
The most recent version is called
(Practical Alignments using SATe and TRansitivity).
PASTA is faster, can analyze larger datasets (up to 200,000
sequences), and is more accurate.
PASTA is available as open-source software, and uses
a very similar
GUI as SATe.
We recommend you use
PASTA instead of SATe.
