Based on the chaos game representation, a 2D graphical representation of protein sequences was introduced in which the 20 amino acids are rearranged in a cyclic order according to their physicochemical properties. The Euclidean distances between the corresponding amino acids from the 2-D graphical representations are computed to find matching (or conserved) fragments of amino acids between the two proteins. Again, the cumulative distance of the 2D-graphical representations is defined to compare the similarity of protein. And, the examination of the similarity among sequences of the ND5 proteins of nine species shows the utility of our approach. © 2010 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. J Comput Chem, 2010
