Hi, I am a newbie to bioinformatic analysis from a different background.
So I would like to know if my idea is totally dumb, or should i keep on it.
I wonder how it would be if we had stored the dna sequence data in pixels, giving differend rgb values for different nucleotides. Wouldn't it be easier and user-friendly to store data, compare and find alignments using image processing tools? I imagine a standard coloring code for annotations which can be improved for further analysis. Finding similar sequences by overlapping images would be easy. I could use the machine learning alghoritms to find patterns for distinguishing genes or non-coding sequences.
Does it make any sense to you or should i keep studying and don't waste my time for these ideas? :)
