In this study, the effects of the scoring functions, which are used in Multiple Sequence Alignment problem, to find the biologically meaningful alignment has been investigated. BALiBASE version 3 has been used as benchmark set. Results have been obtained by calculating score values for alignments in benchmark set and investigating whether the higher score is possible for benchmark alignment or not.
