Next: An Algorithm For Finding Up: Using Insertion and Deletion Previous: Split and shifted gaps


We can build improved MSAs by shifting and combining gaps. The idea is to find split and/or shifted gaps, combine them and move them to a position that makes more sense biologically, provided that the global score increases. In our experience, the scoring function we use has always been in accordance with the experts [23].
