Probably the most important data type after vectors and free text is that of symbol strings of varying lengths. This type of data is commonplace in bioinformatics applications, where it can be used to represent proteins as sequences of amino acids, genomic DNA as sequences of nucleotides, promoters and other structures. Partly for this reason a great deal of research has been devoted to it in the last few years. Many other application domains consider data in the form of sequences so that many of the techniques have a history of development within computer science, as for example in stringology, ...
