 Ophir D, Gera A, Analysis of n-nary tract frequency in the genome, Onl J Bioinform., 6 (2):142-148, 2005. The investigation of n-nary tracts has arisen following the discovery of over-representation of binary tracts in the genome. This work describes frequencies of ternary tracts in diverse gene locations using the p53 gene as an example. Results suggested that binary sub-tracts dominated over ternary tracts. The uniformity in the p53 gene was 62.5% greater than in a random sequence.  This suggests that ternary tracts proprieties derive from lengthy binary subtracts and would not have a role in the gene.
