On representation of DNA by line distance matrix
Recently Line Distance (LD) matrix has been introduced as a novel route for characterization of DNA sequences. The approach was based on construction of four separate submatrices for the four nucleotides, the first row of each of which records the separation between the selected nucleotide and the remaining nucleotides of the same kind. In this article, we consider an alternative representation of DNA by LD matrix in which we construct a single matrix for each DNA sequence. The approach is illustrated on the DNA sequence of the first exon of human β-globin gene.
