I'm not sure if I got this correct, so let me know if this isn't
true. I'm just asking for confirmation here.
My question: It seems that BLAST does not generate multiple section
alignments? Is this true or not?
By multiple section alignments, I mean for example when the head of
a gene is moved to the middle of a gene. A very sophisticated gene
searcher could generate a stronger hit for such a case, than simply
returning the best alignment, because there will now be multiple
alignments within the two genes that we are comparing.
