I want to code Moreau-Broto autocorrelation, Moran autocorrelation, Geary autocorrelation in Python 3.6 from the scratch for amino acid sequences without using any package. Unfortunately, I have not been able to come across a proper literature which shows how these autocorrelation indices have to be calculated. Can anyone give a clear explanation as to how to calculate it or at least give a link which has got a clear description of how to calculate these?


1 Answer 1


Rajarshi Guha describes the formulas to calculate Moreau Broto autocorrelation, Moran coefficient and Geary coefficient and has a bibliography.

But why reinvent the wheel? It seems that the Autocorrelation module of the PyBioMed package does already what you want: it is a pure Python implementation without any external dependencies.
