Pairwise Distances from Multiple Sequence Alignment (MSA) Vs Pairwise Local Alignment Distances

Following heatmaps present the correlation between distances computed from multiple sequence alignment (MSA) versus pairwise local alignment. Distance computation from MSA is explained in the previous post at Distances computed from pairwise local alignment follows the usual recipe of using Smith-Waterman with -16/-4 gap penalties and EDNAFULL scoring matrix for alignment followed by percent identity based distance computation. A similar study was done with previous data as well (see
