We describe a program STATSEARCH which implements the method of Mott et al. (1989) for searching DNA and protein sequence databanks for statistically significant similarities to a given query sequence. STATSEARCH is written to run in conjunction with the GCG sequence analysis package.
A method is developed, based on word-searching, which provides a rapid test for the statistical significance of DNA sequence similarities for use in databank searching. The method makes allowance for the lengths and dinucleotide compositions of the sequences being compared. A way is also described to calculate the power of the test, i.e. the probability of… (More)
