Variant Maps to Identify Coding and Non-coding DNA Sequences of Genomes Selected from Multiple Species

Yuquan Liu and Jeffrey Zheng

DNA sequences comprise complex genetic information, their specific characteristics are contained in both coding and non-coding sequences. Major gene components in higher levels of organisms are composed of non-coding sequences. In ENCODE project, there are evidence that 98% human Genomes are non-coding forms and 80% of them with functions. This paper provides a measurement model and a set of experiment results on genomic sequences using variant maps to distinguish differences on coding and non-coding sequences in visual representations. This model applies probability measurements on DNA sequences to coding and non-coding regions respectively to identify distinguished patterns from different sequences of multiple species.
