Understanding Partial Order Alignment for Multiple Sequence Alignment

This is a crosspost from Jonathan Dursi, R&D computing at scale. See the original post here.

Over at the Simpson Lab blog, I have an explainer on Understanding Partial Order Alignment, an under-appreciated method for multiple sequence alignment; I hope the explanation there (and explanatory implementation) is useful to those exploring graph-based approaches to alignment.
