The number of amino acids in a protein is important to predict their size. I used coding DNA sequence (CDs) to predict the average of the protein size of E.coli k12 from a sample provided by the
seqinr R package. The size of each sequence is stored in variable
I used two histograms to fit the distribution of this variable and their logarithm.
I suggest that the log linear distribution is more reasonable.The average E can be calculated then:
- Which average do I have to use?
- Is there a correlation between the base composition and the predicted average?
