Table 1 Monte Carlo operations

From: Accurate statistics for local sequence alignment with position-dependent scoring by rare-event sampling

operation resulting sequence
substitution of D at position 5 LGQIDTAE
insertion of D at position 5 with left shift GQIWDTAE
insertion of D at position 5 with right shift LGQIDWTA
deletion at position 5 with left shift LGQITAED
deletion at position 5 with right shift DLGQITAE
  1. Valid Monte Carlo operations for input sequence s = LGQIWTAE (indexing starts with 1). In order to obtain sequences of the same length as s, in the case of a deletion a character (D) to be appended at the border has to be specified.
