If an ELM prediction is mapped to a known ELM instance, the prediction is given a score from 0 to 1, where 1 means that the query sequence is identical to the database sequence, and the prediction can be considered an experimentally verified ELM instance.
ELMs are annotated with the proper taxonomic range using NCBI taxonomy node identifiers, and only ELMs relevant for that species will be shown in the prediction results.
