  1. Incomplete beta and binomial shows the cumulative binomial and binomial p-values respectively for each motif for all supports between 0 and N = 4. p1+μis the success probability of the motif considered. The value in italics indicates the highest scoring motif in the example described. The bold values indicate the values of k for which I(k, N, pm) < = 0.1485, the p μ value of the highest ranking motif. The five right hand columns are only shown to illustrate how the probabilities in the left hand columns are calculated (with sums across the bold values in the right hand columns cells totaling the values in the left hand columns).
