  1. Columns 5 and 6 show the maximum z-scores obtained and the maximum percentage improvements obtained when using Blosum62 combined with topology-based matrices. Columns 7 and 8 show the show the maximum z-scores obtained and the maximum percentage improvements obtained when using VT160_RA combined with topology-based matrices. Maximum percent improvement is the improvement of combined topology-based matrices over the maximum z-score giving generic matrix for each topology. Only the topologies where z-score improvements were observed for both Blosum62 combined and VT160_RA combined matrices over all three of the generic matrices are shown.
