Finding Near-periodic Dna Regions Using a Finite-field Framework

Abstract

Previously, we investigated the error-corrective properties of DNA. Although there is no evidence of a universal coding structure, we now show finite-field mathematics may yield a promising deterministic framework to analyze DNA. In this paper, we discuss a finite-field representation of nucleotides and explore an application, an algebraic technique for detecting near-periodic structure in DNA. In conclusion, this technique is a robust iterative process for finding periodicities among mutational errors.
