Paper Abstract

A number of signal processing and statistical methods can be used in analyzing either pieces of text or DNA sequences. These techniques can be used in a number of ways, such as determining authorship of documents, finding genes in DNA, and determining phylogenetic and linguistic trees. Signal processing methods such as spectrograms provide useful new tools in the area of genomic information science. In particular, fractal analysis of DNA "signals" has provided a new way of classifying organisms.
