Composition Alignment Overview
Composition Alignment or, more whimsically, scrambled alignment, employs the mechanisms of string matching and string comparison yet avoids the overdependence of those methods on position-by-position matching. In composition alignment, we extend the matching concept to composition matching. Two strings have a composition match if their lengths are equal and they have the same nucleotide content.
