>Score Scheme Costs of operations are reals (signed floats).
For distances computation, the algorithm is looking for operations of minimal costs. In order to make sens, it is recommanded to use a null cost for matchings and a positive or null cost for other operations.
For scores computation, the algorithm is looking for operations maximizing the score. In order to make sens, it is recommanded to use high positive costs for matchings and negative or null costs for other operations.

Specify a cost:
Allowed base codes are (CBN, IUPAC-IUB):
A:AdenineR:Purine (A or G)B:Non-adenine (B follows A)
U:UracilY:Pyrimidine (C or U)V:Non-uracil (V follows U)
G:GuanineM:Amino (A or C)H:Non-guanine (H follows G)
C:CytosineK:Keto (G or U)D:Non-cytosine (D follows C)
N:aNy baseS:Strong hydrogen bonds
(G or C)
W:Weak hydrogen bonds
(A or U)

To specify a base-pair, just enter its two letters.
Note: order of bases in a pair is important (ie. "AU" is different from "UA").

Specified costs:This list contains edit costs you specified. Unspecified edit cost are automatically computed using the default score scheme. To know the default cost of an edit operation, juste use one of the 3 previous lines to enter the bases involved and the default score will be displayed automatically in the end of the line.
