Table 3 Influence of mismatch type on weighted mismatch calculation

From: Identification of human pathogens isolated from blood using microarray hybridisation and signal pattern recognition

Probe Target   Probe Target   Probe Target   Probe Target  
A - A 1.0 G - A 1.0 C - A 0.7 T - C 1.0
- C 0.4 - G 1.0 - C 1.0 - G 1.0
- G 1.2 - T 1.0 - T 1.0 - T 1.0
  1. Weights of mismatches due to the type of mismatched bases. A mismatch of adenine on the probe with cytosine on the target sequence is weighted with 0.4, whereas a mismatch of the same probe with a guanine in the target sequence is weighted with 1.2.
