Identifying Deletion Mutation Using Matrix

M. Yamuna, A. Elakkiya


Mutations, is the change in the blue print of life and that blue print is our DNA in which all phenotypic expressions are coded. The Biotechnologist and researches in this field had today discovered that mutation does not only change the appearance but are involved in behavior of men and women’s. Mutations may vary in size from single DNA base to a large fragment of a chromosome. In this paper we propose a method of identification deletion mutation using matrix representation.
