Sequence comparison

Longest Common Subsequence – Shortest Common Supersequence

The main goal of this project concerns the development of algorithms for sequence analysis by novel alignment methodology and sequence comparison by consensus sequence methods with application in several field of genome sequence comparison (genome sequence rearrangement, multiple sequence comparison). Our investigation in this area has concerned the design of approximation and heuristic algorithms for the LCS and SCS, the Exemplar Longest Common Subsequence.
