Did anyone ever respond to you on this? K and lambda. I forget where K
comes from. Lambda is dependent on the scoring matrix you are using. I
believe it is given with the matrix. BLOSUM uses 0.347.

Subject: [BiO BB] How to calculate the value of K and Lambda for two
sequence alignment
Hi Everybody
Using Smith Waterman algorithm I want to align two sequences. Aftet that
I want to calculate the expectation value. For calculating the
expectation value we know that
E = Kmn e - lx
But how can I calculate the value of K and l .
Is there any formula that can help me to calculate the value of K and l
, and then the expectation value.
Thanking all in advance
Shoyaib
