Abstract

The use of Bioinformatics tools for analyzing digital artifacts is explored in a joint research project between Bioinformatics and Computer Security domains. An algorithm for creating “synthetic DNA” is presented which allows Bioinformatics tools which process DNA to be used. The sequence comparison tool BLAST is used to examine computer programming assignments for plagiarism, to cluster documents of different content types, and to look for similarities between variants of a particular malware strain.
