We explored the possibilities of whole-genome duplication (WGD) in prokaryotic species, where we performed statistical analyses of the configurations of the central angles between homologous tandem repeats (TRs) on the circular chromosomes. At first, we detected TRs on their chromosomes and identified equivalent tandem repeat pairs (ETRPs); here, an ETRP is(More)
Graphical representation of DNA sequences is one of the most popular techniques for alignment-free sequence comparison. Here, we propose a new method for the feature extraction of DNA sequences represented by binary images, by estimating the similarity between DNA sequences using the frequency histograms of local bitmap patterns of images. Our method shows(More)
Accompanied with the rapid increase of the amount of data registered in the databases of biological sequences, the need for a fast method of sequence comparison applicable to sequences of large size is also increasing. In general, alignment is used for sequence comparison. However, the alignment may not be appropriate for comparison of sequences of large(More)
Genomes contain various types of repetitive sequences. They may be used as probes for seeking genome rearrangements because they are rather free from the natural selection if they are located in the intergenic regions. In this study, we searched for tandem repeats (TRs) in 44 prokaryotic genomes by the color-coding method and sought the signs of genome(More)
