I want a metric - not an answer - for this.
If I have a main binary sequence - 00100 I want a measure to tell me how far away another binary sequences 1's are relating to the sequence of interest.
So comparing my main sequence with these:
A - 01000
B - 10000
I want to say that B is X% further from the main sequence compared to Y% for sequence A. By further I mean the distance of the positive entries of one sequence to the positive entries of another - their index in the sequence.
Any extant metrics for this type of distance-specific binary sequence analysis.
I dont want a measure to say how similar the sequences are, I want to say how much further one is from another.
I am not doing homeworks or jobs or anything - I am 30 just tinkering with protein sequence analysis and I want a metric that does this, that is all.
