New computational and visual tools for biomolecular sequence analysis from the field of digital signal processing are introduced. In particular, we show that not only the magnitude, but also the phase, of a properly defined Fourier transform, is a powerful predictor of both the existence and the reading frame of protein coding regions in DNA sequences. We demonstrate that color maps can help in visually identifying protein coding areas for both DNA strands, including the reading frames of each… CONTINUE READING
