Study on the Super Eulerian Path and the Sequence Reconstruction

Jia Xingui, Xiao Xiang, Jiang Kaizhong


De Bruijn graph and Eulerian path in graph are useful mathematics tools for sequence representation and sequence analysis. In this paper, a weighted De Bruijn graph is first proposed. Each vertex and each edge of the graph is assigned a weight respectively. Then, a super Eulerian path in the weighted De Bruijn graph and its reconstruction algorithm from the weighted De Bruijn graph are proposed. The super Eulerian path is a path which can visit a vertex or a edge multiple times. This work is useful for solving the repetitive region problem of the DNA reconstruction.
