Figure 2.

Theoretical bound on sequence length compared with results from MEME. Theoretical bound sequence length, L, at which less than one false-positive motif with information content D(f,g) is expected (solid lines) compared to experimental results of MEME (crosses) for motif width W = 10. The region of the plot above and to the left of the traces represents the parameter space in which less than one false positive is expected. The results are for three different numbers of sequences, n = {10,20,30} indicated by red, blue and black symbols and traces, respectively.
