The PAM 250 matrix newly recalculated in

@article{Gonnet.Cohen.Benner.1992,
author = "Gaston H. Gonnet and Mark A. Cohen and Steven A. Benner",
title = "Exhaustive Matching of the Entire Protein Sequence Database",
year = 1992,
journal = "Science",
volume = "256",
pages = "1443-1445"}

is available in two files in the format used by PIR and some other alignment
programs.  The files are:
  SWR250.MAT --- the matrix with scores rounded to the nearest integer
  SWF250.MAT --- the matrix with scores multiplied by 10
To use the second matrix, the cutoff scores for the programs should also be
multiplied by 10 to obtain comparable results.
These file can be obtained from the PIR Network Server by sending the commands
  SEND SWR250.MAT
or
  SEND SWF250.MAT
to FILESERV at GUNBRF on BITNET.
