[Since the discovery that deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) is the primary repository of genetic information, understanding the molecular evolution of biological sequences such as DNA, ribonucleic acid (RNA) and proteins has been invaluable for understanding the driving forces, trends and implications...
[To this point, we have concentrated on compositional properties of genomes in the form of short oligonucleotide frequencies; and we have shown that oligonucleotide frequencies constitute genome signatures. Following the genome analysis literature from different disciplines, two different...
[In the previous chapters, we have viewed computational genomic signatures as mathematical structures mapped from DNA sequences to a metric space. These structures summarize the intrinsic dynamics of genomes and contain signals emphasizing the net response of the genome to environmental...
[Categorization of living organisms has always been of great interest, and continues to occupy the attention of scientists today. Starting with Aristotle, and perhaps with many prior unrecorded attempts, taxonomy has turned many corners, yet still remains a big challenge. It requires a...
[Microbic organisms are involved in numerous processes of life on Earth. Microorganisms are a source of nutrients, they cycle organic matter, and they form symbiotic relationships with life forms at every level of the tree of life. In aggregate, they make up a great proportion of the living...
[We have reviewed several applications of computational genomic signatures involving the evolutionary distances between genomes and detection of the taxonomical membership of genome fragments. These applications exploit the species specificity and pervasiveness of genomic signatures. As reported...
