Uniqueness, Self Belonging and Intercourse in Nature-New Version

submitted by: hsrikm
Biological organization is discussed within a holistic framework . A new orientation is presented of natural processes with an approach in model construction that is focused strictly on physical form and centered away from abstractions that escape the perceptual senses, lead towards the postulation of non-verifiable and non-witnessible entities. A universal construction composed of first perspective representations of path, witness as unique loci in volumes of space delineated as...

Gregor Mobius - visualDNA/entropy2

Visual method for representing five DNA and RNA bases U C A G T with five discrete values on the gray-scale: Black (Uracil)-100%black, Dark(Cytosine) 75%, Gray(Adenine)-50%, Light(Guanine) -25% and White(Thymine) - 0% www.visualDNA.org Icon is a visual 3x4 matrix consisting of four codons (12 same or different bases). Special cases are icons with equal numbers of the two bases (for example 6xG and 6xC). In these cases an icon has high organization if bases C ocupies one its halves and G...

Maximum-Likelihood Model Averaging To Profile Clustering of Site Types across Discrete Linear Sequences

submitted by: JeffreyTownsend
A major analytical challenge in computational biology is the detection and description of clusters of specified site types, such as polymorphic or substituted sites within DNA or protein sequences. Progress has been stymied by a lack of suitable methods to detect clusters and to estimate the extent of clustering in discrete linear sequences, particularly when there is no a priori specification of cluster size or cluster count. Here we derive and demonstrate a maximum likelihood method of...
