Results for "distance"


  • Andi

    This is the andi program for estimating the evolutionary distance between closely related genomes. These distances can be used to rapidly infer phylogenies for big sets of genomes. Because andi does not compute full alignments, it is so efficient that it scales even up to thousands of bacterial g...

  • Edit distance application in bioinformatics !

    There are other popular measures of edit distance, which are calculated using a different set of allowable edit operations. For instance, the Damerau–Levenshtein distance allows insertion, deletion, substitution, and the transposition of two adjacent characters; ...
