The performance of sMCL-WMR as the number of strings increases in comparison to other motif recognition programs. Other programs tested include MCL-WMR [10], PROJECTION [4], Voting [9], and PMSprune [8]. The time is given in CPU seconds. In all experiments, ℓ = 18, d = 6, m = 600 and n ranges from 18 to 40.
