It has been said that weighted edit distance is a preferred way to compare/align genomes in practice, e.g., when identifying genetically similar patients. I wonder if there are some concrete examples when weighted edit distance is used this way and I am particularly interested to see some example weight tables. Some links to research papers showing such examples would be very useful.
