I'm attempting to globally align two profiles.  I need to determine a score
for the overall similarity between the two profiles that won't be biased by
the size of the initial profiles.  Meaning, simply adding up the column scores
from the final MSA won't suffice because the larger of the two initial
profiles would have a larger influence on the final score.  Any help?
