Aligning multiple DNA/RNA/protein sequences to identify common functionalities, structures, or relationships between species is a fundamental task in bioinformatics. In this study, we propose a new multiple sequence strategy that extracts sequence information, sequence global and local similarities to provide different weights for each input sequence. A(More)
A common and cost-effective mechanism to identify the functionalities, structures, or relationships between species is multiple-sequence alignment, in which DNA/RNA/protein sequences are arranged and aligned so that similarities between sequences are clustered together. Correctly identifying and aligning these sequence biological similarities help from(More)
In this paper, we demonstrate how to implement and improve two Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) algorithms on the Optical Pipelined Reconfigurable Mesh (PR-Mesh): the generic ACO and the Fast Ant Colony Optimization (FACO) algorithm. The run-time complexity of our improved generic ACO algorithm, with x generations each generation having m ants, on an nxn(More)
