Application of a novel and fast information-theoretic method to the discovery of higher-order correlations in protein databases.

Abstract

We present a fast, discrete data-mining approach to the problem of finding kappa-tuples of correlated amino acid residues in protein sequence data. When sets of sequence-distant sites display high mutual information, they may bespeak important structural or functional features. Our novel methodology overcomes the limitations of previous methods which… (More)
