It is shown how to normalize the costs of an alignment algorithm that employs affine or linear gap costs. The normalized costs are interpreted as the -log probabilities of the instructions of a finite-state edit-machine. This gives an explicit model relating sequences that can be linked to processes of mutation and evolution. Copyright 1993, 1999 Academic Press
