Sequence alignment is one of the most important applications in computational biology, and is used for such diverse tasks as identifying homologous proteins, analyzing gene expression, mapping variations between individuals, or assembling de novo the genome of organism. Except for trivial cases involving just a small number of short sequences, virtually all other sequence alignment tasks rely on a precomputed index of the sequence to accelerate the alignment. Two of the most important index… CONTINUE READING
