Ssearch in the version 36 of the FASTA program package (see W. R. Pearson and D. J. Lipman (1988), "Improved tools for biological sequence comparison" PNAS 85:2444-2448; W. R. Pearson (1996), "Effective protein sequence comparison" Meth. Enzymol. 266:227-258; and Pearson et. al. (1997), Genomics 46:24-36).
