Common substitution matrices for alignments.
When in doubt, use BLOSUM62.
for some hints on good parameters for nucleotide alignments.
See also http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Substitution_matrix for a
summary about the difference between the different matrices.
For BLOSUM matrices, the associated number determines the
similarity of the sequences the matrices are derived from.

|BLOSUM45 matrix, suitable for distantly related sequences
|The standard BLOSUM62 matrix.
|BLOSUM80 matrix, suitable for closely related sequences.
For PAM matrics, the number indicates the number of mutations
that have occurred between the sequences that are compared.

|The standard PAM30 matrix
|The standard PAM70 matrix.
|BLASTn defaults, for nucleotide sequences
|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.
