I'm looking for other ways of quantifying sequences besides looking at GC-content and length? I could look at coverage and stuff but what about just from the raw sequence? The size of the sequences are gene-length to contig-length of good assemblies (1000 nt - 200 000 nt)
size after compression,
I hate to bang my own drum, but you can find plenty of DNA structural parameters and other relevant metrics in my work on DNA atlases from 15 years ago (Jensen et al., 1999; Pedersen et al., 2000). This includes parameters such as predicted DNA curvature, flexibility and stability.
