Scores for the alignments of the 338 blocks used in the benchmark. Each row is for an expert block aligned using one of the four programs (Multiz, MUSCLE, PRANK or T-Coffee). Each column shows the scores obtained using one of the four scoring functions (Ancestor, MUSCLE, GUIDANCE or T-Coffee) for the three types of alignment (the initial alignment, the best alignment obtained with the Phylo Classic version and the best alignment obtained by the Phylo Expert version). Highlighted cells show scores that improve the initial score.
