Transition rates are the probabilities of transition from one state to another observed in the sequence data. Substitution costs based on transition rates can be used when computing distances between sequences with the optimal matching method (see seqdist).

a matrix of dimension *ns*ns*, where *ns* is the number of states in the alphabet of the sequence object.
