How does Belvu calculate conservation scores?
I am using Belvu to calculate per-residue conservation scores but I could not find either in the manual nor in the SeqTools paper how conservation is calculated (Shannon entropies, similarity, etc).
For example, Belvu gives me sometimes low conservation values (2-3) for high values of percentage identity (over 80%), or give me a value of 4 for 100% sequence identity. Any idea of where can I find this information?
