Useful genomics--the deconstruction of the genome to figure out the organic functionality of genes and gene interactions--is some of the most fruitful new parts of biology. The becoming use of DNA microarrays permits researchers to evaluate the expression of tens of millions of genes at a time. This quantitative swap has resulted in qualitative development in our skill to appreciate regulatory strategies on the mobile point.
Starting with the Escherichia coli co protein, or bacterial DNA topoisomerase I, an ever-increasing variety of enzymes has been pointed out that catalyze alterations within the linkage of DNA strands. DNA topoisomerases are ubiquitous in nature and feature been proven to play serious roles in so much p- cesses concerning DNA, together with DNA replication, transcription, and rec- bination.

Two modi®cations are required.
This is based on an automatic assignment of secondary structures for a given crystal structure followed by an assessment of the degree of accuracy of helix, sheet and loop predictions. As long as one restricts oneself to the problem of secondary structure prediction for a single sequence the limit in predicting accuracy today seems to lie around 63% . PHD claims an accuracy up to 72% due to the inclusion of multiply aligned sequences. In practical applications, however, the concrete data set will decide about the success of secondary structure prediction.
In particular it implies that gaps at the ends are charged like any other gap. This, however, is a particularly unrealistic feature of a global alignment. 2), their respec- 37 38 2 Sequence Analysis tive N- and C-termini usually are dicult to match up and dierences in length at the ends are more of a rule than an exception. Consequently, one prefers to leave gaps at the ends of the sequences un-penalized. This variant is easy to implement in the dynamic programming algorithm. Two modi®cations are required.
