Percentages of good and bad probes for different individual specificity criteria for F. tularensis. Identity and T (number of mismatches, presented in Figure 4a as the difference between the average probe length L avg and T) are different ways of measuring sequence similarity. M0 is the maximum length of contiguous matches, and M1, M2, and M3 are measures of near-contiguous matches. It can be seen that none of the thresholds for the individual criteria are effective in clearly discriminating between good and bad probes.
