  1. The number of queries (N q ) retrieving at least N G number of good matching cases as a good match is defined as TMS ≥ th s and its statistical significance. Assuming the number of good matches follows a binomial distribution, p-value is computed as \( \Pr \left(X\ge {N}_q\right)={\displaystyle {\sum}_{x\ge {N}_q}\left(\begin{array}{c}\hfill m\hfill \\ {}\hfill x\hfill \end{array}\right){p}^x{\left(1-p\right)}^{m-x}} \) where p is a random chance of retrieving ≥ N G good matches (TMS ≥ th s ).
