2D DNA Walk

In conventional 2D DNA Walks a simple algorithm is used to draw a DNA walk by simply assigning a direction to each nucleotide such as T, C, A, and G correspond the East, South, West, and North directions in 2D, respectively. Reading the nucleotide sequence – nucleotide by nucleotide – following the rule – a path emerges like on the graph: Figure 1.


It is clearly shown that such a sequence of “ATATATATA” as an example would not lay a distinctive path in 2D, therefore the visualization might be misleading.
We need better solution.
