Abstract

Our work here outlines and follows some trends of research which analyze and interpret (i.e., decode) genomic information, by assuming the genome to be a book encrypted in an unknown language. This analysis is performed by sequence alignment-free methods, based on information theoretical concepts, in order to convert the genomic information into a comprehensible mathematical form and understand its complexity.
