Statistical distributions of optimal global alignment scores of random protein sequences
Background: The inference of homology from statistically significant sequence similarity is a central issue in sequence alignments. So far the statistical distribution function un...

Evolution of biological sequences implies an extreme value distribution of type I for both global and local pairwise alignment s
Background: Confidence in pairwise alignments of biological sequences, obtained by various methods such as Blast or Smith-Waterman, is critical for automatic analyses of genomic d...

Accurate statistics for local sequence alignment with position-dependent scoring by rare-event sampling
Background: Molecular database search tools need statistical models to assess the significance for the resulting hits. In the classical approach one asks the question how probable...

Local sequence alignments statistics: deviations from Gumbel statistics in the rare-event tail
Background: The optimal score for ungapped local alignments of infinitely long random sequences is known to follow a Gumbel extreme value distribution. Less is known about the imp...

Improvement in accuracy of multiple sequence alignment using novel group-to-group sequence alignment algorithm with piecewise li
Background: Multiple sequence alignment (MSA) is a useful tool in bioinformatics. Although many MSA algorithms have been developed, there is still room for improvement in accuracy...
