<p><b>Abstract</b>—We examine the problem of finding maximum-scoring sets of disjoint segments in a sequence of scores. The problem arises in DNA and protein segmentation and in postprocessing of sequence alignments. Our key result states a simple recursive relationship between maximum-scoring segment sets. The statement leads to fast algorithms for finding such segment sets. We apply our methods to the identification of noncoding RNA genes in thermophiles. </p>
