1 illustrates this idea. Note that AS(A, B) denotes the optimal alignment score between sequences A and B. 1) 1≤j≤m The integer j, which maximizes the sum, is called the mid-point. 4 describes how to compute the mid-point using the cost-only Needleman-Wunsch algorithm. 5 gives an example demonstrating how the algorithm FindMid computes the mid-point. j]) for all j. m]) for all j. m]), for j = 0, 1, . . , m − 1, by getting the m sums of the m diagonal pairs from the two middle rows. Then, we obtain the mid-point j which corresponds to the maximum sum.

3. Grow the host cells in the presence of antibiotic. Note that only cells with the antibiotic-resistance gene can grow. When the host cell duplicates, X is also duplicated. 4. Select those cells that contain both the antibiotic-resistance genes and the foreign DNA X. DNA X is then extracted from these cells. Cloning is a time-consuming process normally requiring several days, whereas we will learn a much quicker method known as PCR in the next section. 4 PCR PCR is an acronym which stands for polymerase chain reaction.

They found that PDGF is similar to v-sis onc gene. DR?? 34 p28sis 61 LARGKRSLGSLSVAEPAMIAECKTRTEVFEISRRLIDRTN 100 At that time, the function of v-sis onc gene was still unknown. Based on the similarity between v-sis onc gene and PDGF, they claimed that the transforming protein of the primate sarcoma virus and the platelet-derived growth factor are derived from the same or closely related cellular genes. This was later proven by scientists. Research conducted by Riordan et al. [244] showed a similar result.
