2D Conjugate Maps of DNA Sequences


Random sequences play an important role in wider security applications, such as mobile communication and network security. Due to DNA sequences owning natural randomness, in order to show DNA’s characteristics intuitively, this paper proposes a method to present DNA sequences as conjugate maps. The method includes two core models: measuring models to transfer DNA data into measurements, and visual models to test random sequences as distribution maps to show DNA’s characteristics. The spatial relations between sample DNA and CA random sequences are illustrated and compared in the end. The results show that the distribution of DNA sequences and CA random sequences has significant differences and similarities. It can provide a reference for in-depth visualization study of DNA sequences on their measurement maps.
