Comparisons of whole genomes can yield important insights into the evolution of genome structure, such as the role of inversions in bacterial evolution and the identification of large-scale duplications in the human genome. This unit briefly compares two tools for aligning whole genome sequences: MUMmer and PipMaker. These tools differ in both the underlying algorithms used, and in the interface they present to the user.
