Deal with Motifs or Signatures allowing ambiguity in the sequences.
This class contains Schema which deal with Motifs and Signatures at a higher level, by introducing “don’t care” (ambiguity) symbols into the sequences. For instance, you could combine the following Motifs:
‘GATC’, ‘GATG’, ‘GATG’, ‘GATT’
as all falling under a schema like ‘GAT*’, where the star indicates a character can be anything. This helps us condense a whole ton of motifs or signatures.

Determine whether or not the given pattern matches the schema.
- pattern - A string representing the pattern we want to check for matching. This pattern can contain ambiguity characters (which are assumed to be the same as those in the schema).
- schema - A string schema with ambiguity characters.
- ambiguity_character - The character used for ambiguity in the schema.
