Paper Abstract

The paper will introduce the quaternary, or radix 4, based system for use as a fundamental standard beyond the traditional binary, or radix 2, based system in use today. A greater level compression is noted in the radix 4 based system when compared to the radix 2 base as applied to a model of information theory. The application of this compression algorithm to both DNA and RNA sequences for compression will be reviewed in this paper.
