Long-range power-law correlations have been reported recently for DNA sequences containing noncoding regions. We address the question of whether such correlations may be a trivial consequence of the known mosaic structure ("patchiness") of DNA. We analyze two classes of controls consisting of patchy nucleotide sequences generated by different algorithms--one without and one with long-range power-law correlations. Although both types of sequences are highly heterogenous, they are quantitatively…

Long-range correlation measures for quantifying patchiness: Deviations from uniform power-law scaling in genomic DNA
We introduce and develop new techniques to quantify DNA patchiness, and characteristics of their mosaic structure. These techniques, which involve calculating two functions, α(l) and β(l), measure
Characteristic Patch Sizes in DNA
We develop techniques for studying characteristic length scales in DNA sequences and apply these to the analysis of long genomic sequences including all available human sequences longer than 100000
Characteristic Patch Sizes in DNA Sequences
We develop techniques for studying characteristic length scales in DNA sequences and apply these to the analysis of long genomic sequences including all available human se quences longer than bp and
Quantification of DNA patchiness using long-range correlation measures.
TLDR
It is found that, by themselves, neither the alternation of coding and noncoding regions, nor repetitive sequences, can fully explain the long-range correlation properties of DNA.
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.
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.
Scaling features of noncoding DNA.
TLDR
It is found that cytosine-guanine (CG) concentration does have a strong "background" effect on redundancy, and for the purine-pyrimidine binary mapping rule, the Shannon redundancy for the set of analyzed sequences is larger for noncoding regions compared to coding regions.
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 of
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.
Analysis of DNA sequences using methods of statistical physics
TLDR
There is evidence, based on systematic studies of the entire GenBank database, supporting the idea that the DNA sequence in genes containing noncoding regions is correlated, and that the correlation is remarkably long range, i.e., base pairs thousands of base pairs distant are correlated.
