    Claude Shannon founded information theory in the 1940s. The theory has long been known to be closely related to thermodynamics and physics through the similarity of Shannon's uncertainty measure to the entropy function. Recent work using information theory to understand molecular biology has unearthed a curious fact: Shannon’s channel capacity theorem only applies to living organisms and their pro...

    The goal of this article is to give a brief account of the recent developments in codes and biology. With the increasing understanding of biology and with the advancement of sequencing technology, the whole human genome is stretched out before us. There is a need to look again with these new information for the applications of coding and information theory to biology. This paper focuses on the exi... View full abstract»

  • Digital parity and the composition of the nucleotide alphabet

    In retrospect, a potential role for error coding in shaping the nucleotide alphabet seems obvious, and yet, with two notable exceptions, it appears to have been largely ignored; Szathmary recognized in his paper the relationship between donor-acceptor (D/A) patterns and replication errors (1992), while Yockey implicitly implied a role for error coding in nucleotide transmission, assigning 5-b repr...

    A review of DNA signal content, redundancy, and mutational mechanisms is presented. Mutation-robust methods are developed to detect a linear coding structure and approximate tandem repeats. In this article, a method to uncover an error-correction coding structure in the nucleotide sequence is developed and its efficiency in detecting approximate tandem repeats, such as microsatellite regions, is d...

    In this article, we investigate the possible existence of error-detection/correction mechanisms in the genetic machinery by means of a recently proposed coding strategy. On this basis, we numerically code exons, creating binary parity strings and successively we study their dependence structure by means of rigorous statistical methods (moving block bootstrap, and a new entropy-based method). The r... View full abstract»
