BLOSUM matrices
PAM matrices
BLASTn defaults, for nucleotide sequences
Generic and simple matrix generator

Common substitution matrices for alignments.

When in doubt, use BLOSUM62. Consult for some hints on good parameters for nucleotide alignments.

See also for a summary about the difference between the different matrices.

blosum45 :: (Char, Char) -> Int
blosum62 :: (Char, Char) -> Int
blosum80 :: (Char, Char) -> Int
pam30 :: (Char, Char) -> Int
pam70 :: (Char, Char) -> Int
blastn_default :: Num a => (Chr, Chr) -> a
simpleMx :: Num a => a -> a -> (Chr, Chr) -> a
BLOSUM matrices

For BLOSUM matrices, the associated number determines the similarity of the sequences the matrices are derived from.

Henikoff, S. and Henikoff, J. Amino acid substitution matrices from protein blocks. Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA. 89(biochemistry): 10915 - 10919 (1992).

blosum45 :: (Char, Char) -> IntSource
BLOSUM45 matrix, suitable for distantly related sequences
blosum62 :: (Char, Char) -> IntSource
The standard BLOSUM62 matrix.
blosum80 :: (Char, Char) -> IntSource
BLOSUM80 matrix, suitable for closely related sequences.
PAM matrices

For PAM matrics, the number indicates the number of mutations that have occurred between the sequences that are compared.

pam30 :: (Char, Char) -> IntSource
The standard PAM30 matrix
pam70 :: (Char, Char) -> IntSource
The standard PAM70 matrix.
BLASTn defaults, for nucleotide sequences
blastn_default :: Num a => (Chr, Chr) -> aSource
Blast defaults, use with gap_open = -5 gap_extend = -3 This should really check for valid nucleotides, and perhaps be more lenient in the case of Ns. Oh well.
Generic and simple matrix generator
simpleMx :: Num a => a -> a -> (Chr, Chr) -> aSource
Construct a simple matrix from match score/mismatch penalty
