Suppose you used the NCBI Blast server to look for a match to a fruit-fly gene. Suppose further that the best alignment contained this section of an alignment: Hit from database: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXNFSTSQ User sequence: SLEAEAAPASISPSNFSSSQ What do the Xs signify?

Suppose the Blast search returned 100 hits. Of these, 17 were false positives and we knew that there were 165 sequences in the database which should have returned a hit with our sequence. How many false negatives were there, and what is the sensitivity and selectivity of Blast in this instance?
