Genomic Signal Processing (GSP) has been a challenging area of research for the past two decades and has increasingly attracted the attention of researchers in the Digital Signal Processing field. The prerequisite for genomic sequence analysis is the conversion of Deoxyribo-nucleic acid (DNA) sequence (ATTCGA….) to a numerical sequence. Further, DSP algorithms can be implemented on these representations for genomic analysis like prediction of coding regions, protein coding regions, cancer cells. In this paper, the numerical representation of DNA sequences are presented and compared in terms of methodology, dimensionality, merits and demerits.
