[…] k-mismatch acs (kmacs) [] is an extension of the acs approach which approximates the number of substring matches with up to k mismatches. another, more recent extension of the acs approach is alfred-g, also capable of computing lengths of shared sequences with mismatches allowed []. acs-like methods which allow for k>1 mismatches can be highly costly in computational terms, […]

[…] what this means is that the best of teaching or the best review article with the greatest of citations, cannot get you the prize. but an original finding like g protein can (given in 1994 to alfred g. gilman and martin rodbell. please do not connect it to discovery of the ‘g’ spot. although that reward, according to some, may be more worthy than the nobel!)., talking of clinical trials, […]

[…] this review discusses the structural aspects of gpcr-g protein coupling by comparing the results of previous biochemical and biophysical studies to the gpcr-g protein crystal structure., in 1994, alfred g. gilman and martin rodbell were awarded the nobel prize in physiology or medicine for “their discovery of g-proteins and the role of these proteins in signal transduction in cells.” eighteen […]
