Table 1 Effects of varying PSI on ability of FastGroup to correctly identify Bact517 site. To determine the number of times that the site was found by FastGroup, the sequences were displayed from the 3' direction and visually analyzed in the group_seqs.txt output file. The number of false positives were determined by looking for significantly truncated sequences (e.g., <400 bp) and then visually confirming that a false site was identified
