Recognition of flanking exons

Figure 3.10 shows the three-dimensional histograms reflecting oligonu-cleotide composition of gene flanking regions created based on the graphical fractal representation of nucleotide sequences [97, 98, 99]. The clear differences in composition were exploited in the development of recognisers of these regions.

Fractal graphical representation of the number of different hexanucleotides in the 5'- (top) and 3'- (bottom) gene regions. Each colon represents the number of a particular hexanucleotide in the set of sequences.
