Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Biologically occurring nucleotide sequences differ from randomly generated ones. Here we describe general patterns found in prokaryotic and in eukaryotic DNA. In the accompanying paper (Nussinov, 1991) we also describe DNA signals recognized by their corresponding protein factors. In particular, we focus on modes of searches for such patterns and signals and on the potential properties such sequences may possess.
