RBT-L: a location based approach for solving the Multiple Sequence Alignment problem

RBT-L: a location based approach for solving the Multiple Sequence Alignment problem

International Journal of Bioinformatics Research and Applications 6(1): 37-57

This paper presents a novel approach to solve the Multiple Sequence Alignment (MSA) problem. The Rubber Band Technique: Location Base (RBT-L) introduced in this paper, is inspired by the elastic behaviour of a Rubber Band (RB) on a plate with poles. RBT-L is an iterative optimisation algorithm designed and implemented to find the optimal alignment for a set of input protein sequences. RBT-L is tested with one of the well-known benchmarks (BALiBASE 2.0) in this field. The obtained results show the superiority of the proposed technique even in the case of formidable sequences.
