Jaebum Kim, Jian Ma

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Summary: We developed PSAR-Align, a multiple sequence realignment tool that can refine a given multiple sequence alignment based on suboptimal alignments generated by probabilistic sampling. Our evaluation demonstrated that PSAR-Align is able to improve the results from various multiple sequence alignment tools.
