highly parametrizable pairwise global genome sequence aligner


Lagan takes local alignments generated by CHAOS as anchors, and limits the search area of the Needleman-Wunsch algorithm around these anchors.

Multi-LAGAN is a generalization of the pairwise algorithm to multiple sequence alignment. M-LAGAN performs progressive pairwise alignments, guided by a user-specified phylogenetic tree. Alignments are aligned to other alignments using the sum-of-pairs metric.
