Human Polyomaviruses genome analysis by logic mining techniques

ABSTRACT
According to virologists and to the virus domain experts the identification of characteristic positions in the entire genome of a virus has been proven to be fundamental for the classification of the virus itself. In this work different human polyomaviruses DNA sequences are analyzed using a logic data mining method in order to identify the nucleotides which are able to distinguish the different types of the five actually known polyomaviruses. The approach presented in this work is successful as it discovers several logic rules that effectively characterize the diverse classes of polyomaviruses. The individuated logic rules are able to separate precisely one class from the other and to assign an unknown DNA sequence to one of the five different types of polyomaviruses. The data mining analysis is performed by considering the complete sequences of the viruses and the sequences of the different gene regions separately, obtaining in both cases extremely high correct recognition rates.
