Exceptional Motifs in Different Markov Chain Models for a Statistical Analysis of DNA Sequences


Identifying exceptional motifs is often used for extracting information from long DNA sequences. The two difficulties of the method are the choice of the model that defines the expected frequencies of words and the approximation of the variance of the difference T(W) between the number of occurrences of a word W and its estimation. We consider here… (More)
