 The Study of Correlation Structures of DNA Sequences:
 A Critical Review

        Wentian Li, Rockefeller University

 The study of correlation structure in the primary sequences
 of DNA is reviewed. The issues reviewed include: symmetries
 among 16 base-base correlation functions, accurate estimation
 of correlation measures, the relationship between 1/f and
 Lorentzian spectra, heterogeneity in DNA sequences, different
 modeling strategies of the correlation structure of DNA sequences,
 the difference of correlation structure between coding and
 non-coding regions (besides the period-3 pattern), and source
 of broad distribution of domain sizes. Although some of the
 results remain controversial, a body of work on this topic
 constitutes a good starting point for future studies.
