ASAP Web: Help
- Probability :
At each step of the process, ASAP clusters objects within a same distance range into a node. An object is either a node or a specimen. A probability (*) is calculated for each node at each step of the process. If the probability of a node is below the value indicated here, then ASAP will readjust the number of putative species, splitting each node which probability value is below. The default value is 0.01.
- Scores kept: Number of results with the highest scores to be displayed in the table and on the curve.
- Seed value : ASAP makes simulations which are based on a random seed generator. If you change the seed, the probability may be slightly different at each run. (leave -1 if you don't want to use a fixed seed value).
- Highlighted results: You may want to visualize the partitions included in a given range of genetic distances (e.g. in the vicinity of the barcode gap). This has no impact on the ASAP results. A star will be added to the best scores belonging to this interval and a blue rectangle will be drawn on the graphic, helping you to spot these partitions.
