Paper Abstract

Extremophilic cold-adapted sequences and their degradation codes have been studied using fractal dimension and Shannon entropy. The nucleotide fluctuation of a DNA and/or RNA sequence can be studied as a random series using the nucleotide atomic number differences between A, T, C, G, and U. Studies of degradation codes suggest a positive correlation of Shannon entropy with mRNA stability, and a negative correlation of fractal dimension with mRNA stability.
