Spaced Words – Alignment-free Sequence Comparison

Spaced Words

:: DESCRIPTION

Spaced Words is a new approach to alignment-free sequence comparison. While most alignment-free algorithms compare the word-composition of sequences, Spaced Words uses a pattern of care and don’t care positions.

UnderlyingApproach – Alignment-Free Phylogeny of Whole Genomes using Underlying Subwords

UnderlyingApproach

:: DESCRIPTION

The Underlying Approach (UA) builds a scoring function based on this set of patterns, called underlying. This set is by construction linear in the size of input, without overlaps, and can be efficiently constructed. Results show the validity of our method in the reconstruction of phylogenetic trees, where the Underlying Approach outperforms the current state of the art methods. Moreover, the accuracy of UA is achieved with a very small number of subwords, which in some cases carry meaningful biological information.
