Evaluates the accuracy of protein sequence alignment methods. CASA is an implementation of the alignment accuracy benchmark. The server produces graphical and tabular comparisons of the accuracy of a user’s input sequence alignments with other commonly used programs, such as BLAST, PSI-BLAST, Clustal W, and SAM-T99. The website provides the sequences to be aligned and several lists of sequence pairs of different sizes from the full set of structure alignments in the benchmark.
