The name of the database (file name) that contains the motif.

For statistical test methods, splitting the sorted input sequences into two partitions at this rank gives the optimal *p*-value.
Sequences at and above this rank were treated as "positives", and sequences with larger rank
were treated as "negatives" when applying the statistical test that gives the optimal *p*-value.
For `linreg`

), the optimal split is the one that yields
the minimum mean squared error.

[

The (optimal) enrichment *p*-value of the motif according to the statistical test.

[
close ]

The adjusted (optimal) enrichment *p*-value of the motif according to the statistical test.
This is the best *p*-value for the motif, adjusted for multiple tests using a Bonferroni
correction. The number of multiple tests is given at the start of this section. If the
*p*-value is *p* and the number of multiple tests is *n*, then the adjusted
*p*-value is 1 - (1-*p*)***n*.

The value of Spearman's rank correlation coefficient (ρ). It varies between -1 and +1. Low values of ρ indicate high correlation between the ranks of sequences sorted by motif scores (decreasing) or FASTA scores (increasing). So, assuming small FASTA scores are "good", a low value of ρ indicates that a motif is enriched in the "good" sequences.

The value of the mean squared error of the linear regression of X vs Y.

[
close ]

The slope of the regression line: Y = mX + b.

[

The Y-intercept of the regression line: Y = mX + b.
