  • SummaryThe nucleotide sequence of the RNA of the bacteriophage MS2 was examined by computer for internal patterns. We used a technique which analyzes a nucleotide sequence as a Markov chain. This led us to discover patterns within the translated and untranslated regions of the RNA in addition to those patterns formed by the codons. One of the more surprising results of this analysis was the discovery that the non-coding sequences in the genome are as highly ordered, although in a different… CONTINUE READING
