sdists.center.align(x, center, method = "ow", weight = c(1, 1, 0, 2),
                    exclude = c(NA, NaN, Inf, -Inf),
                    break.ties = TRUE, transitive = FALSE,
                    to.data.frame = FALSE)

Arguments

x

a list (of vectors) or a vector of character.

center

a vector

method

argument to sdists.

weight

argument to sdists.

exclude

arguments to sdists.

break.ties

a logical specifying whether random tie-breaking should be performed. Otherwise the first alignment is used.

transitive

a logical specifying whether the sequences in x should be aligned with each other, too.

to.data.frame

a logical specifying whether the result should be converted to data.frame.

Details

Each component of x is aligned with center in turn such that the latter is aligned with all sequences processed so far.

If center is missing isdists.center is used to compute an initial center.

Value

Either a list of sequences with attributes center and ties, or a data.frame with the sequences in the columns.

Note

The global alignment may depend on the order of x.
