Looking for rare variations of genetic codes between intra or inter DNA sequences is an important activity in the quest for disease identification and other related explorations. Such experiments may reveal information about variations in regular molecular structures. For the analysis of multitude of genetic sequences with the tool of neural nets, providing a suitably preprocessed input data may serve as a critical factor in the cognitive ability and processing power of the networks. Hence, an attempt has been made in this direction to construct an artificial neural network with the support of numerically characterized input data sets. We found that the network is capable of rapid cognition and as well gives relatively better detection performance when compared to conventional learning method.
