I want to implement SEG in my MATLAB environment and I'm relying on Wootton and Federhen (1993) Reading the article I cannot succeed to understand what kind of process I have to implement in order to build my script. Specifically what kind of statistics I should follow to compute the complexity state and the repetition vector and what kind of procedure I have to do to calculate these statistics over the amino acid sequence.

Do you know some articles that explains in a better fashion what is needed, namely the mathematical process behind the results shown in the article? Code examples in other languages welcome. Thank you in advance

  • $\begingroup$ You might want to be more specific here. What part are you struggling with in that paper? At a glance it appears well explained —no mathemagic. Or is converting summations &co. to quick vector calculus Matlab without for-loops or converting a string (cell of characters) to a vector, which in Matlab is annoying? $\endgroup$ – Matteo Ferla Jul 28 '20 at 16:22

    $\begingroup$ It is not a problem about the code. It is a problem about the various passages that I should follow. Basically, reading the article, it is not very clear about what kind of statistics I should follow to compute the complexity state and the repetition vector and what kind of procedure I have to do to calculate these statistics over the amino acid sequence. The article is not very clear and I was searching for some more detailed threads to follow in order to understand what I have to do in whatever programming language. $\endgroup$ – Firingam Jul 29 '20 at 11:36
