CMSC 423 Multiple Sequence Alignment Multiple sequence alignment: ﬁnd more subtle patterns & ﬁnd common
patterns between all sequence. MSA
• The multiple sequence alignment problem: Input: Sequences: S1, S2, ..., Sm
Let M be a MSA between these sequences.
Let dM(Si, Sj) be the score of the alignment between Si and Sj
implied by M.
SPScore(M) = ∑i,j dM(Si, Sj) = Sum of all pairwise alignment
scores. •
• Goal: ﬁnd M to minimize SPScore(M).
But this is NPhard. SPScore in a Picture
SPScore(M) = ∑i,j dM(Si, Sj)
= sum of all the scores of
the pairwise alignments
implied by M. Sj dM(Si, Sj)

• A multiple sequence alignment (MSA) implies a pairwise alignment
between every pair of sequences. • This implied alignment need not be optimal, however:
match = 1, a mismatch = 1, gap = 2

Apply the same DP idea as sequence alignment for 2 sequences, but
now with a 3dimensional matrix

O(n3) time. • For k sequences: nk subproblems,
each takes 2k time for the max and
k2 to compute cost() O(k2nk2k) • Even O(n3) is often too slow for the
length of sequences encountered in
practice. • One solution: approximation

Input: sequences S1, S2, ..., Sk •
• Build all O(k2) pairwise alignments.
Let Sc = the sequence in S1, S2, ..., Sk that is closest to the others.
That is, choose Sc to minimize: ∑i≠c d(Sc, Si) • Iteratively align all other sequences to Sc. d(Sc, Si)

cost(x,y) ≤ cost(x, z) + cost(z,y)

OPT = cost of optimal multiple sequence alignment (under SPscore)
Theorem. If cost satisﬁes the triangle inequality, then STAR ≤ 2×OPT.
Example: if optimal alignment has cost 10, the star alignment will have
cost ≤ 20. Proof (1)

• Multiple sequence alignments (MSAs) are a fundamental tool. They
help reveal subtle patterns, compute consistent distances between
sequences, etc. • Quality of MSAs often measured using the SPscore: sum of the
scores of the pairwise alignments implied by the MSA. • Same DP idea as pairwise alignment leads to exponentially slow
algorithm for MSA. • 2approximation obtainable via star alignments. • MSAs often used to create proﬁles summarizing a family of
sequences. Proﬁlesequence alignments solvable via dynamic
programming. ...
