nextalign

Nextalign is a viral genome sequence alignment algorithm used in Nextclade, ported to C++ and made into the standalone command-line tool.

Nextalign performs pairwise alignment of provided sequences against a given reference sequence using banded local alignment algorithm with affine gap-cost. Band width and rough relative positions are determined through seed matching.
