Homework- Lab 2 Genome Research Article Background: DNA sequence alignment has been a requirement to almost all comparative genomic analyses especially the interference of relationships among genes and the species they are related to. Researchers are able to identify these factors and even then there are errors made with negative errors in the sequence alignment which made a difference as well. There are many different ways to align the genes such as multiple or arranged in parts. The simplest way to understand this to know that sequences are aligned beginning to end to produce global alignments. This alignment process is being applied to many other areas of molecular phylogenetic and evolution. Materials and Methods: There were many indirect materials and methods used in the article. As it says in the article, the challenging aspect of it was to line up the bases by inserting gaps in sequences, because genomic analyses must be based on comparisons between positions that coincided in the common ancestor. In the alignment process, sequences are aligned beginning to end to produce

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
