Sequence alignment algorithms are widely used to infer similarirty and the point of differences between pair of sequences. FOGSAA is a fast Global alignment algorithm. It is basically a branch and bound approach which starts branch expansion in a greedy way taking the symbols from the given pair of sequences (protein or nucleotide) and results in an optimal alignment faster than conventional dymanic programming techniques. It is also better than the heuristic methods with respect to alignment quality. Obtaining high quality sequence alignment as well as minimizing the running time, is a real challenge in bioinformatics. FOGSAA is an invention in this direction.
