As of this release (1.0), ICE assumes you are using S.pyogenes Cas9. However, it does not check if the PAM site is NGG and just uses the input guide sequence to place the predicted cutsite 3bp upstream of the end of the input sequence. If you wish to analyze other nucleases, you can input a fake guide sequence and position your expected cut site 3bp from the end of your sequence. This guide sequence will be used by the tool and the algorithm does not enforce any particular PAM site. We will add explicit support of other nucleases in upcoming versions of ICE.
