K-Mers Similarity Score Matrix

Contains tools to calculate similarity score matrix for DNA k-mers. The pairwise similarity score is calculated using PAM or BLOSUM substitution matrix. The results are evaluated by similarity score calculated by Needleman-Wunsch (1970) global or Smith-Waterman (1981) local alignment. Higher similarity score indicates more similar sequences for BLOSUM and less similar sequences for PAM matrix; 30, 40, 70, 120, 250 and 62, 45, 50, 62, 80, 100 matrix versions are available for PAM and BLOSUM, respectively.
