Description

This exercise is used in a sophomore-junior level bioinformatics course. The algorithm is introduced to the students who then spend around 15 minutes filling out the diagram. Students have typically been doing some sequence alignment exercises, such as BLAST searches, and have used different scoring systems to score different short alignments, so they are familiar with sequence alignments and the concept of scoring the alignments, but they have not been exposed to how to generate an alignment.
