Recent theoretical advances have turned the idea of representing biological sequences in a continuous coordinate space a reality, which sets the stage for a new generation of sequence analysis tools, including iterative maps. This book provides an accessible introduction to the new theory, illustrates its algorithmic implementation, and suggests new formulations for sequence querying, alignment, clustering, entropy, and statistical characterization. The author provides both MATLAB and Web-based software that readers can use to develop their own algorithms, illustrates the formulation of iterative procedure with graphical representations, and includes end-of-chapter examples and more
