The lemma below shows that the solutions reported by them are in fact the same. 1 Let σ be the cost matrix of the edit distance problem and δ be the score matrix of the global alignment problem. If δ(x, y) = −σ(x, y) for all x, y ∈ Σ { }, the solution to the edit distance problem is equivalent to the solution to the string alignment problem. 32 Algorithms in Bioinformatics — A Practical Introduction PROOF Let (x, y), x, y ∈ Σ ∪ { }, be an operation that transforms x to y. Recall that insertion of symbol y is ( , y) and deletion of x is (x, ).

3). It is unnecessary to execute the Needleman-Wunsch algorithm to fill in the lower and upper triangles in the table V . An algorithm which fills in only the middle band is called the banded Needleman-Wunsch alignment. For time analysis, note that the area of the (2d + 1) band in the table V is nm − (n − d)(m − d) = md + nd − d2 . Since the time for filling in every entry inside the band is O(1), the running time of the banded Needleman-Wunsch algorithm is O((n + m)d). Chapter 4 will discuss other efficient heuristic methods for aligning two long DNA sequences.

Therefore the space complexity is O(m + n). 4 More on Global Alignment There are two special cases of the global alignment problem. Both of them can be solved using a similar dynamic programming approach with specific score function: 1. Longest Common Subsequence (LCS): Given two sequences X and Y , a sequence Z is said to be a common subsequence of X and Y if Z is a subsequence of both X and Y . The LCS problem aims to find a maximum-length common subsequence of X and Y . For example, the LCS of “catpaplte” and “xapzpleg” is “apple,” which is of length 5.
