Evaluation with dynamic programming. The simple DP scheme computes all probability vectors Q0, Q1, Q2 completely within the green marked area, corresponding to score ranges of prefix PSSMs M k . In contrast to the simple scheme, the restricted probability computation method computes only the upper end of the probability distribution until the given p-value threshold is exceeded, omitting parts of the green area. In this example we show how to compute the score threshold T m i n P MathType@MTEF@5@5@+=feaafiart1ev1aaatCvAUfKttLearuWrP9MDH5MBPbIqV92AaeXatLxBI9gBamrtHrhAL1wy0L2yHvtyaeHbnfgDOvwBHrxAJfwnaebbnrfifHhDYfgasaacH8akY=wiFfYdH8Gipec8Eeeu0xXdbba9frFj0=OqFfea0dXdd9vqai=hGuQ8kuc9pgc9s8qqaq=dirpe0xb9q8qiLsFr0=vr0=vr0dc8meaabaqaciaacaGaaeqabaWaaeGaeaaakeaacqWGubavieGacqWFTbqBcqWFPbqAcqWFUbGBdaWgaaWcbaGaemiuaafabeaaaaa@3D07@ (π, M) for PSSM M of length m = 3 and a score range of [4,11] corresponding to a given p-value threshold of π = 1 8 MathType@MTEF@5@5@+=feaafiart1ev1aaatCvAUfKttLearuWrP9MDH5MBPbIqV92AaeXatLxBI9gBaebbnrfifHhDYfgasaacH8akY=wiFfYdH8Gipec8Eeeu0xXdbba9frFj0=OqFfea0dXdd9vqai=hGuQ8kuc9pgc9s8qqaq=dirpe0xb9q8qiLsFr0=vr0=vr0dc8meaabaqaciaacaGaaeqabaqabeGadaaakeaadaWcaaqaaiabigdaXaqaaiabiIda4aaaaaa@2EAA@ .

Cells of the matrix that are computed in the step actually under consideration are marked red. In step d = 0, see (A), the algorithm computes Q2(11) recursively for all paths through M that achieve a score of 11, i.e. Q2(11) = Q1(8)·f(G), Q1(8) = Q0(4)·f(G), Q0(4) = Q-1(0)·f(A) = 1· 1 4 MathType@MTEF@5@5@+=feaafiart1ev1aaatCvAUfKttLearuWrP9MDH5MBPbIqV92AaeXatLxBI9gBaebbnrfifHhDYfgasaacH8akY=wiFfYdH8Gipec8Eeeu0xXdbba9frFj0=OqFfea0dXdd9vqai=hGuQ8kuc9pgc9s8qqaq=dirpe0xb9q8qiLsFr0=vr0=vr0dc8meaabaqaciaacaGaaeqabaqabeGadaaakeaadaWcaaqaaiabigdaXaqaaiabisda0aaaaaa@2EA2@ , since AGG is the only path achieving score 11.

In step d = 1 all paths achieving a score of 11 - d = 10 to determine Q2(10) are computed, see (B).

In this step, DP allows to reuse value Q1(8) without recomputation.

We obtain a score threshold of th = 10 correponding to π.
