On the length of the longest exact position match in a random sequence.

Abstract:
A mixed Poisson approximation and a Poisson approximation for the length of the longest exact match of a random sequence across another sequence are provided, where the match is required to start at position 1 in the first sequence. This problem arises when looking for suitable anchors in whole genome alignments.
