Pardon my complete ignorance

... So far i can only find http://users.rcn.com/jkimball.ma.ultranet/BiologyPages/G/GenomeSizes.html (E. coli) Is there an algorithm or set of rules that dictate what genes do when they are combined?

Re: Codons are triplets, but what's a Singlet, Doublet, etc?

Thanks for the excellent keywords (BLAST algorithm) that worked great for finding ideas in the google search engine. I am familiar with the NCBI’s BLAST search engine and interface to their supercomputers, but until now the program has been more ...

Codons are triplets, but what's a Singlet, Doublet, etc?

What about 'word'? That's used in BLAST algorithm, so I think it could be understandable. Anyway, what's the point of your pictures exactly?

Re: Increasing Information For Genetic Algorithm

If the new selective pressure is constant in time, then any deviation from the "optimum" will be selected against. The most mutation-resistant synonym will be selected for. If the new selective pressure is short lived, (but extends over a number of generations), and is then replaced by a ...

Re: Increasing Information For Genetic Algorithm

If it is vital that a particular sequence remain unchanged, the DNA will evolve to the most mutation-resistant encoding, but if adaptability is required, it will evolve to a less stable encoding. I tried to get this idea through in several prior posts and doesn't seem to take... DNA does NOT mutate...
