SEALI: A sequence alignment tool

  In this paper we propose a novel program for sequence alignment. This program has been developed in PERL. The web interface uses CGI and front end for data input and viewing the result has also been developed. This program counts the length of two sequences, aligns the two sequences, counts the number of matches, mismatches, gaps and score and displays the possible alignment.    Key...

In silico identification of potential horizontal gene transfer events between archaea and pathogenic bacteria

  Horizontal gene transfer plays a potent role in the evolution of prokaryotes. A rigorous sequence and phylogenetic analysis was carried out using the robust clustalW, motifs/domains finding suites and neighbor-joining based ProtDist and BioNJ. This paper reports a few cases of horizontal gene transfer events between archaea and bacteria. Some of these events have been found to be unique to the bacterial...
