Neural Networks and Bioinformatics

Sequence alignment (SA) of DNA, RNA and protein primary structure forms an integral, if not the most important part of bioinformatics. We have discussed an overview of SA methods in this course [1], which share the procedure of finding the ”best” match of two given strings of letters and evaluating its quality or extent of agreement consistently with alternative alignments of the same two strings or those of other strings. The evaluation consists of assigning scores to matches and mismatches of individual letters plus finally adding these up, where both the choice of the scores and the minimum search in the space of possible alignments are constructed from statistical methods. Let me draw your attention to two particular points:
