Monte Carlo operations 

operation 
resulting sequence 


substitution of D at position 5 
LGQIDTAE 
insertion of D at position 5 with left shift 
GQIWDTAE 
insertion of D at position 5 with right shift 
LGQIDWTA 
deletion at position 5 with left shift 
LGQITAED 
deletion at position 5 with right shift 
DLGQITAE 


Valid Monte Carlo operations for input sequence s = LGQIWTAE (indexing starts with 1). In order to obtain sequences of the same length as s, in the case of a deletion a character (D) to be appended at the border has to be specified.
