DNA Sequence Analysis

  • Victor Bloomfield
Part of the Biological and Medical Physics, Biomedical Engineering book series (BIOMEDICAL)


In this chapter we introduce some of the elementary concepts for analyzing DNA sequences in terms of “words” of length 1 (bases), 2 (base pairs), 3 (triplets, such as codons), restriction sites, etc. The analysis uses some of the basic probability concepts that we have worked with in the previous chapter. Our treatment follows closely that of Deonier et al. [18, Chs. 2 and 3].
