Multiple protein and nucleic acid sequences are aligned for two principal purposes: to identify common motifs in sequences with a conserved biological function and to identify motifs in a newly characterized sequence that may provide insight into its biological functions. This is typically performed by scanning the newly identified sequence against a database.
