Hi Moritz,
It is based on phylogenetic tree, the substitution comparison from lower nodes must be compared to higher level.

E.g. For column 11, the bases for row 3 is compared to row 1. Same result will also be given if we compare row 3 to row 2. Both row 1 and row 2 has higher level than row 3 row 4 in phylogenetic tree.

neversaint and everlastingly indebted.......

    I still don't quite understand. We have
    human: C chimp: T mouse: T rat: C

    So which comparisons exactly lead to to a number of 2? With which rules?

    As a poor perl programmer I'm not familiar with the phylogenetic tree, so if that's relevant here please explain in which relation these four examples appear in that tree.

    Have you changed your example?
    A C T G
    How does that become 3? And the column moritz quoted above used to bee:
    C T T T
