MCQ on Multiple Sequence Alignment




Multiple Sequence Alignment (MSA) is the process of aligning three or more biological sequences simultaneously. It aids in identifying conserved regions, understanding evolutionary relationships, and predicting functional elements. MSA methods include progressive alignment, iterative methods, and tools like Clustal Omega and MUSCLE. This is an MCQ on Multiple Sequence Alignment Principles and Applications.
