New method for comparing DNA primary sequences based on a discrimination measure.

Abstract

We introduce a new approach to compare DNA primary sequences. The core of our method is a new measure of pairwise distances among sequences. Using the primitive discrimination substrings of sequence S and Q, a discrimination measure DM(S, Q) is defined for the similarity analysis of them. The proposed method does not require multiple alignments and is fully… (More)
