Description : Probabilistic Alignment Kit for biological sequences
PRANK is a probabilistic multiple alignment program for DNA, codon and
amino-acid sequences. It's based on a novel algorithm that treats insertions
correctly and avoids over-estimation of the number of deletion events.
In addition, PRANK borrows ideas from maximum likelihood methods used in
phylogenetics and correctly takes into account the evolutionary distances
between sequences. Lastly, PRANK allows for defining a potential structure
for sequences to be aligned and then, simultaneously with the alignment,
predicts the locations of structural units in the sequences.
The package was prepared during the Debian Med meeting in Travemünde and is
mostly ready for uploading to the archive.
