Vertical decomposition with Genetic Algorithm for Multiple Sequence Alignment

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 3180391
PMID: 21867510
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2105-12-353

[…] what is called "orphan sequences". VDGA performed differently with different datasets. To judge the performance of VDGA with respect to BAliscore, we have compared with SAGA, RBT-GA, PRRP, CLUSTALX, DIALIGN, HMMT, SB_PIMA, ML_PIMA, MULTALIGN and PILEUP8. Table and Figure show that for the 23 test cases, the VDGAs (Decomp_2, Decomp_3 and Decomp_4 together) were successful in finding more accurat […]


Cgaln: fast and space efficient whole genome alignment

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 2873541
PMID: 20433723
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2105-11-224

[…] of MUMmer 3.0. It clusters the matches of MUMmer 3.0 and tries to align the non-exact regions between the matches by DP.Although there are other genomic alignment tools, such as CHAOS, LAGAN, SLAGAN, DIALIGN, GLASS, and WABA, they are either too slow to execute or their source codes are not available. All experiments were performed on a 2.0 GHz Core2Quad (64-bit CPU) with 8 GB memory. […]


Identification and functional characterisation of the promoter of the calcium sensor gene CBL1 from the xerophyte Ammopiptanthus mongolicus

BMC Plant Biol
PMCID: 2844064
PMID: 20113489
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2229-10-18
call_split See protocol

[…] promoter elements were analysed by PLACE http://www.dna.affrc.go.jp/PLACE/ and PLANTCARE http://bioinformatics.psb.ugent.be/webtools/plantcare/html/. Sequence alignments were created with the program DIALIGN. Differences in GUS activity among treatment groups were tested with analyse of variance (ANOVA) in SPSS 16.0 […]
