Protein motifs, which are specific regions and conserved regions, are found by comparing multiple protein sequences. These conserved regions in general play an important role in protein functions and protein folds, for example, for their binding properties or enzymatic activities. The aim here is to find the existence correlations of protein motifs. The… (More)
Let the R 2 space be divided into unit squares where a polyomino is a finite, connected set of unit squares. In this paper, we give a necessary and sufficient condition on tessellating polyominos by observing an unexpected relation between such tessellations and systems of arithmetic progressions.
