DNA SEQUENCES have been analysed using models, such as an it-step Markov chain, that incorporate the possibility of short-range nucleotide correlations1. We propose here a method for studying the stochastic properties of nucleotide sequences by constructing a 1:1 map of the nucleotide sequence onto a walk, which we term a 'DNA walk'. We then use the mapping to provide a quantitative measure of the correlation between nucleotides over long distances along the DNA chain. Thus we uncover in the… Expand

Long-range correlations in DNA sequences using 2D DNA walk based on pairs of sequential nucleotides
Abstract We study the long-range correlations of DNA sequences using two-dimensional (2D) DNA walk model by considering pairs of sequential nucleotides. In this model, the effects of second-orderExpand
Understanding long-range correlations in DNA sequences
TLDR
It is concluded that a mixture of many length scales (including some relatively long ones) in DNA sequences is responsible for the observed 1 f -like spectral component. Expand
Study of statistical correlations in DNA sequences.
TLDR
It is shown that long-range correlations, implying scale independence, appear in several bacterial genomes as well as in long human chromosome contigs. Expand
Statistical properties of DNA sequences.
TLDR
This work addresses the claim of Voss that there is no difference in the statistical properties of coding and non-coding regions of DNA by systematically applying the DFA algorithm, as well as standard FFT analysis, to every DNA sequence in the entire GenBank database. Expand
Ising-model description of long-range correlations in DNA sequences.
TLDR
It is shown that, for distances between 10(3) and 10(6) bp, the correlations show a universal behavior and may be described by the non-mean-field limit of the long-range 1D Ising model, allowing for some testable hypothesis on the nature of the interaction between distant portions of the DNA chain. Expand
A quantitative test of long-range correlations and compositional fluctuations in DNA sequences.
TLDR
The present study reveals that certain natural DNA sequences (especially those with compact genomes) do have stochastic characteristics which are intrinsically different from artificial sequences. Expand
Long Range Correlations between nucleotide triplets
TLDR
The analysis on nucleotide triplets reveals LRCs for the human Chromosomes 20 and 21, and some triplets that contain only nucleotides Adenine and Thymine are seen to exhibit correlation significantly higher than others. Expand
Statistical and linguistic features of DNA sequences.
We present evidence supporting the idea that the DNA sequence in genes containing noncoding regions is correlated, and that the correlation is remarkably long range--indeed, base pairs thousands ofExpand
GENERATING NONTRIVIAL LONG-RANGE CORRELATIONS AND 1/f SPECTRA BY REPLICATION AND MUTATION
This paper aims at understanding the statistical features of nucleic acid sequences from the knowledge of the dynamical process that produces them. Two studies are carried out: first, mutualExpand
Variations in base pair composition and associated long-range correlations in DNA sequences--computer simulation results.
TLDR
This paper investigates in detail, with the aid of computer simulations, the connection between compositional heterogeneity of a DNA sequence and the appearance of long-range correlations, and shows how the apparent 'fractal' character of a sequence gradually evaporates, as the frequency of the compositional variations of a simulated sequence continuously increases.

TLDR
The recently discovered noncontiguous sequences in eukaryotic DNA that encode messenger RNA may reflect an ancient, rather than a new, distribution of information in DNA and that eukARYotes evolved independently of prokaryotes. Expand
