Figure 2

Plot Between Pratt measure and four measures. The Pratt algorithm was used to extract 250 flexible gap motifs from the Prosite dataset entry PS00034 (55 sequences). The characteristics of the reported motifs range from 50% to 100% for the support value, from 4 to 9 for the number of concrete symbols and from 1 to 8 for the number of components. The plots from this figure depict the following relations between: (a) Pratt and Support; (b) Pratt and IG; (c) Pratt and logOdd; (d) Pratt and logarithm of Z-Score.
