Sequence Alignment: Methods, Models, Concepts, and Strategies

Michael Rosenberg

Abstract

The sequencing of the human genome involved thousands of scientists but used relatively few tools. Today, obtaining sequences is simpler, but aligning them—making sure that sequences from one source are properly compared to those from others—remains a complicated but underappreciated aspect of comparative molecular biology. This book, whic focuses on this crucial step in analyzing sequence data, is about the practice of alignment, the procedures by which alignments are established, and, more importantly, how the outcomes of any alignment algorithm should be interpreted. It covers molecular cau ... More

Keywords: human genome, molecular biology, alignment, alignment algorithms, alignment underpinnings, computational advances
