In genetics, finding common subsequences allows an analysis of DNA. This Demonstration shows a long common subsequence function operating on a long word list. For example, some of the longer substrings in "ornament" are "rnament", "namen", and "ament". These can be found in "tournament", "unamended", and "Sacramento".
