WOOF

:: DESCRIPTION

WOOF (Word-oriented objective function) is a method designed to rigourously apply the principle of visual alignment validation. WOOF does not actually make changes to a multiple sequence alignment, but is intead intended to choose the best alignment of a set of proteins from a set of such alignments that have been generated using different algorithms and parameter settings. The winning alignment is the one that best aligns a set of conserved patterns extracted using a pattern-finding approach such as TEIRESIAS. Patterns are weighted based on their statistical significance and position relative to other patterns.
