environ.make_pssmdb() — Create a database of PSSMs given a list of profiles

make_pssmdb(profile_list_file, pssmdb_name, profile_format='TEXT', rr_file='$(LIB)/as1.sim.mat', matrix_offset=0.0, matrix_scaling_factor=0.0069, pssm_weights_type='HH1')
This command takes a list of profiles, specified in profile_list_file, to calculate their Position Specific Scoring Matrices (PSSM) and create a database of these PSSMs for use in profile.scan().

The profiles listed in profile_list_file should be in a format that is understood by profile.read(). For instance, like those created by profile.build() or alignment.to_profile. See documentation under profile.read() for help on profile_format.

rr_file is the residue-residue substitution matrix to use when calculating the position-specific scoring matrix (PSSM). The current implementation is optimized only for the BLOSUM62 matrix.

matrix_offset is the value by which the scoring matrix is offset during dynamic programing. For the BLOSUM62 matrix use a value of -450.

pssmdb_name is the name for the output PSSM database.

# Example for: profile.scan()

env = environ()

# First create a database of PSSMs

# Read in the target profile

# Read the PSSM database
psm = pssmdb(env, pssmdb_name = 'profiles.pssm', pssmdb_format = 'text')

# Scan against all profiles in the 'profiles.list' file
# The score_statistics flag is set to false since there are not
# enough database profiles to calculate statistics.
