Symbolic Scatter Plot Helps Visualize Patterns Within DNA Sequence | GenomeWeb

There's more than one way to look at a DNA sequence, and it doesn't have to involve an endless string of letters. North Carolina State University's David Cox has created what he's termed a "symbolic scatter plot" that people can use to visualize patterns found within a DNA sequence with the naked eye. One of his main findings was that when compared to Boston University's Tandem Repeats Finder, his technique found more interesting patterns, and in some cases, repeats that TRF missed.
