The fuzzy polynucleotide space: basic properties

  title={The fuzzy polynucleotide space: basic properties},
  author={Angela Torres and Juan J. Nieto},

MOTIVATION Any triplet codon may be regarded as a 12-dimensional fuzzy code. Sufficient information about a particular sequence may not be available in certain situations. The investigator will be confronted with imprecise sequences, yet want to make comparisons of sequences. Fuzzy polynucleotides can be compared by using geometrical interpretation of fuzzy sets as points in a hypercube. RESULTS We introduce the space of fuzzy polynucleotides and a means of measuring dissimilitudes between… CONTINUE READING
