Table 3Position penalties for SSP nucleotide mismatches


Match score calculation for SSPs.
An 18-mer primer anneals to a mismatched DNA. Primer and template are shown in the sense orientation. The substitution of C with A leads to the mismatch C-T with a penalty of 0.94 (refer to Table 2).
This position has a 6% influence on the overall probe reactivity.
The overall probe score is 1 − (0.06 × 0.94) = 0.94.
