The genome is the gene complement of an organism and it comprises the information of the entire genetic material of an organism. Many researchers use the whole genome alignment method to detect a genomic meaning between genomes. In this paper, we introduce a new method for whole genome alignment with LOD(Level-of-Detail) representation. It helps us to understand a relationship between two genomes and determine candidate sets from the whole genome alignment result.
