Compositional adjustmentsNo adjustmentComposition-based statistics Matrix adjustment method to compensate for amino acid composition of sequences. Filters and masking Low complexity regions Mask off segments of the query sequence that have low compositional complexity. Soft masking Mask only when finding alignment seeds, not during extension. Mask lower case letters Filter regions in lower case in query sequence. PSI-BLAST and PHI-BLAST PSI-BLAST threshold Set the statistical significance threshold to include a sequence in the model used by PSI-BLAST to create the PSSM on the next iteration. DELTA-BLAST threshold Set the statistical significance threshold to include a domain in the model used by DELTA-BLAST to create the PSSM . Iteration number Number of iterations Pseudocount If zero is specified, then the parameter is automatically determined through a minimum length description principle (PMID 19088134). Upload PSSM Upload a Position Specific Score Matrix (PSSM) that you previously downloaded from a PSI-BLAST iteration. You may search a different database than that used to generate the PSSM, but you must use the same query. PHI-BLAST pattern Enter a PHI pattern (PROSITE format) to start the search. PHI-BLAST may perform better than simple pattern searching because it filters out false positives (pattern matches that are probably random and not indicative of homology). Discontiguous Word Options Template lengthNone161821 Total number of bases in a seed that ignores some positions. Template typeCodingMaximalTwo templates Specifies which bases are ignored in scanning the database.
