Probabilistic Model for Purity Values of Bacterial Genome Sequences

Yuta Taniguchi, Ryuji Masui, Toshihiro Aoyama, Daisuke Ikeda
Abstract— In sequence analysis, quantifying characteristics of a genomic region is helpful to identify functions of the region, and many computational measures have been proposed. Purity measure is a computational measure, and its potential to characterize horizontally transferred genes has been shown in the literatures.

Index Terms—Sequence analysis, purity measure, generative model, k-mers, prediction .
