15:40 carandraug on measuring distances in DNA sequences, how you guys say that a sequence such as ATC, C is 1or 0bp away from T? I would say that it's 1 but I can see how zero can also be valid

18:14 jhannah carandraug: I'd say 1. 0 doesn't make any sense to me
18:14 jhannah distance 0 is wherever you are. distance 1 is the nuc next door
18:49 carandraug jhannah, yeah! I think the same. The number zero makes sense when one sees distance between two points as the length of the "gap" between them. If the gap is zero, mean sit's right after
