An Alignment Tree

Via nodalpoint comes this UPGMA tree of sequence alignment algorithms from this paper. The first thing that comes to mind is that there are way too many sequence alignment methods. The second, it’s kinda cool to see one method used to understand another. And Nucleic Acids Research gets mad props for being entirely open access while still being published by the evil empire that is Oxford University Press.

    Thanks for posting this. The alignment method looks interesting.
