I am wondering how to calculate the mutation spectrum.
In paper, I found notations below which seem to refer the mutation spectrum.
C:G -> T:A
C:G -> A:T (I skipped the all of the notations due to space)
My questions is as below.
1. How to interpret notation above? what is meaning of colon? (for dividing?)
why the C,G and G,C (C:G -> G:C) is paired ? is it convention?
Finally How to calculate C/G->T/A?
I am looking forward to your kindly answer :)
