Global improvements of a protein alignment algorithm and comparison with a global optimization solver
Paulo Gouveia, Roberto Andreani, Ana Friedlander, J.M. Martínez, Leandro Martínez
The LovoAlign method for Protein Alignment, based on the Low-Order Value Optimization theory, is recalled. The method is modified in order to improve global convergence properties and compared against other global minimization procedures.
Keywords: Protein alignment; global optimization; structal score.
