Analysis of the structure of indels in algorithmic versus evolutionary alignments based on a set of inequalities confirms the conclusions from numerical modeling. For the more divergent sequences (PAM > 60), the tested aligning algorithm (SW) tends to increase the mean length of indels and decrease their number.
