Tool for generating multiple alignments of protein sequences. Using a
combination of probabilistic modeling and consistency-based alignment
techniques, PROBCONS has achieved the highest accuracies of all alignment
methods to date. On the BAliBASE benchmark alignment database, alignments
produced by PROBCONS show statistically significant improvement over current
programs, containing an average of 7% more correctly aligned columns than
those of T-Coffee, 11% more correctly aligned columns than those of CLUSTAL W,
and 14% more correctly aligned columns than those of DIALIGN. Probcons is
published in Do, C.B., Mahabhashyam, M.S.P., Brudno, M., and Batzoglou, S.

* The "compare", "project" and "makegnuplot" programs are located in the
probcons-extra package and renamed "pc-compare", "pc-project" and
"pc-makegnuplot" to avoid collision with other program names.
* This package contains an additionnal binary which is not in the original
distribution of ProbCons: probcons-RNA. It is an experimental version of
