Abstract

This paper is concerned primarily with how information is stored in viral DNA. The general problem of defining information content is discussed and a procedure for analysis extended from that of Gatlin (1972) is developed. Long range correlations in base sequences are analyzed for several viral genomes. The relationship of these correlations to the existence of strong codon biases is examined and the consequences discussed. © 1983.
