GC-contents, AT-contents, & GC-skewness, AT-skewness

In this study you need to study GC & AT contents and their skewness in the DNA sequences. Specifically, you need to study their characteristics over different part of the sequences, namely the in the gene-area, promoter-area etc. This study may lead to the Gene-Prediction problem. You should need to know some basic programming in Python for some coding to explore some statistics.


  1. Prepare your work-station with ubuntu and python
  2. learn python basics
  3. What is genes, promoters, transcription start site.
  4. Study on the significance of the presence of GC & AT contents their different statistical measures
  5. Start the attached papers.
  6. Detail will be incorporated gradually.
