Dear colleagues,
Is there a method in bioperl that will calculate pairwise alignment scores for any given pair of genes in MSA (according to a given matrix and gap opening/extension cost)? It seems that Bio::SimpleAlign methods only work with score if it has been described in MSA file and can only hold a general multiple sequence alignment score.

Bio::Align::PairwiseStatistics appears to deal with this, see if it fits your needs.  You may need to extract the pairwise alignment of the two genes if they are in a multiple sequence alignment.
