Information capacity of nucleotide sequences measures the unexpectedness of a continuation of a given string of nucleotides, thus having a sound relation to a variety of biological issues. A continuation is defined in a way maximizing the entropy of the ensemble of such continuations. The capacity is defined as a mutual entropy of real frequency dictionary of a sequence with respect to the one bearing the most expected continuations; it does not depend on the length of strings contained in a… CONTINUE READING
