I'm a computer information system's student working on a thesis that tackles gene functionality tracking through evolution in some plant species , and I have done two separate experiments so far using two well known bioinformatics applications .
BLAST , and Clustal Omega were used to measure the similarity percentage between genes across species to be further investigated for changing functionality .
Unfortunately , my supervisor wasn't really satisfied by the results despite of the hard work I've made in those experiments :\
Today , he asked me to compare the results I have i.e. (compare BLAST results vs. Clustal Omega results) from a computer science perspective using some algorithms !! :\
Honestly speaking , he didn't clarify much what he wants me to do , neither do I know how exactly to do this !!
I'm terribly confused and don't know what to do !! :S
Is it even possible to compare Local Alignment Results against Global Multiple Alignment ones ??!!
If so , how can this be done using Computer Science Algorithms ??!!
I'm open to discuss the possibilities of this vague situation .
Any idea what does "computer science perspective" means here ?!
