I am going thru my lectures for next month postgrad course and ran into a doubt. To me it would make sense to apply Needleman-Wunsch (Global) when aligning the subsequences in between the HSSPs identified in the earlier steps. But my class (which I made a couple of years ago) actually states it uses a "Smith-Waterman-like algorithm". Cannot find this in NCBIs handbook, Anybody any idea?
Question: Is BLAST using Needleman-Wunsch or Smith-Waterman when aliging in between HSSPs?
