Chaos game representation (CGR) of DNA sequences and linked protein sequences from genomes was proposed by Jeffrey (1990) and Yu et al. (2004), respectively. In this paper, we consider the CGR of three kinds of sequences from complete genomes: whole genome DNA sequences, linked coding DNA sequences and linked protein sequences. Some fractal patterns are found in these CGRs. A recurrent iterated function systems (RIFS) model is proposed to simulate the CGRs of these sequences from genomes and their induced measures. Numerical results on 50 genomes show that the RIFS model can simulate very well the CGRs and their induced measures. The parameters estimated in the RIFS model reflect information on species classification

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
