PositionSpecific Scoring Matrices
"PositionSpecific Scoring Matrices" is a descriptor in the National Library of Medicine's controlled vocabulary thesaurus,
MeSH (Medical Subject Headings). Descriptors are arranged in a hierarchical structure,
which enables searching at various levels of specificity.
Tabular numerical representations of sequence motifs displaying their variability as likelihood values for each possible residue at each position in a sequence. Positionspecific scoring matrices (PSSMs) are calculated from position frequency matrices.
