Virology Journal | Abstract | Human polyomaviruses identification by logic mining techniques

Differences in genomic sequences are crucial for the classification of viruses into different species.  In this work, viral DNA sequences belonging to the human polyomaviruses BKPyV, JCPyV, KIPyV, WUPyV, and MCPyV are analyzed using a logic data mining method in order to identify the nucleotides which are able to distinguish the five different human polyomaviruses.
