Evalign is a computerised evaluation method for protein sequence alignment algorithm. It compares computer alignments with structural alignments of protein sequences and tells how correct your sequence alignment program is. It gives additional information on the characteristics of different alignment algorithms and shows types specific failings in alignment. A parameter termed as 'position shift rate' (psr, as a unit) for the comparison of sequence alignments is introduced.

It is derived from the number of incorrect alignment positions in comparison with the correct structural alignments. It is an alternative method for the simple counting of the number of identically positioned residues matched in alignments and conceptually easy to comprehend.
