	Dear colleagues,
I was looking at what the program prophecy is doing and I am puzzled. What is 
the difference between Gribskov and Henikoff profiles ? Both seem to have 
match/mismatch scores computed with the help of a scoring matrix as well as gap 
penalties. Furthermore, I thought that the Henikoff's made the Blocks databank 
using pprofiles without gaps. Can someone help me ?
