I am the owner of Bio::Tools::dpAlign. A user emailed me to add
support for IUPAC nucleotide codes. I am ok to add this feature but I
would like to know what are the conventions to handle these IUPAC codes.
Suppose match is +3 and mismatch is -1. Then what should be the
score when T matches with U, A with W, A with D, A with N and A with X?
Does anyone know the conventions?
Thanks a lot.
