    An Analysis of Palindromes and n-nary Tract Frequencies found in a Genomic Sequence
    Author(s): Dan OphirDan Ophir

    The motivation to investigate n-nary and palindrome tracts arose following the discovery by Chargaff and coworkers of over-representation of certain DNA binary tracts in genomes. They investigated the frequencies of various ternary tracts in diverse locations in genes of various species. The current research further examines ternary tracts and the palindromes will hereafter be called designated tracts. Does a designated tract have any extraordinary frequencies of length and location? A theoretical mathematical analysis has been performed to analyze the amount of designated tracts according to the frequencies of its single elements. The designated tracts are categorized according to those that have mixed elements from a subset of a set composing the sequence, and according to which consist of a long tract of lower n-nary order. For example, tract analysis investigates whether the speci.. Read More»
