We would like to announce the release of DIALIGN 2,
an improved version of our novel alignment program
DIALIGN. The method was originally described in
B. Morgenstern, T. Werner, A.W.M. Dress (1996),
"Multiple DNA and protein sequence alignment
based on segment-to-segment comparison."
Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA, 93, 12098 - 12103.
Unlike global alignment methods, DIALIGN is capable
of finding local similarities among distantly related
An online version of DIALIGN 2 is available at
