Mini Tour of Tom Schneider's Theory
Banff
is an overview video.
paperlist
my papers are listed by name.
Below is a suggested reading order of the papers
that leads progressively deeper into the theory.
 Basics:

primer
A short primer on information theory.

schneider1986
Using information theory to measure the information at binding sites
(Rsequence) and to predict that information from the size of the
genome and number of sites (Rfrequency).

logo
A sequence logo graphically shows for binding sites the average
information at each position in the site.

walker
Sequence walksers graphically show the information of individual
binding sites. They are extremely useful!!!

ri
The math underlying sequence walkers.

ev
Demonstration of the results of schneider1986 that Rsequence evolves
to match Renergy: the ev and evj models. Run the java  complete
evolution in a few seconds!

Advanced theory:

ccmm
Molecular machines defined, channel capacity for molecular machines,
noise, energy dissipation, biological states are high dimensional
hyperspheres:

edmm
Building on ccmm, derive minimum energy per bit (Emin)
from channel capacity and second law of thermodynamics:

emmgeo
Information (in bits) versus energy (converted to bits using
Emin) gives efficiency, often 70% for molecular machines.

lattice
The theory depends on high dimensional space. Find the dimensionality
for restriction enzymes. 6 base restriction enzymes have apparently
discovered the best sphere packing, the 24 dimensional Leech lattice!
