  I've found setting the length penalty to 0 allows me to compare cDNA with 
genomic sequence fairly well with bestfit or gap.  I just use the command 
line parameter, ie:


So it should allow you to gap "around" a 100 bp insert.  I'm not sure, but I 
think mismatches are still penalized normally but the length of a gap 
becomes unimportant.
