Abstract

A precise understanding of the genes and associated genomes of SARS-CoV2 is important for various reasons such as discovering origin of the virus and virulence and so on. A thorough descriptive understanding of the SARS-CoV2 genomes and other coronavirus of the beta-coronavirus genus is primarily important. In this article, a set of ten genomes of four CoVs and their associated genes are considered for this present study. A spatial representations of nucleotide bases including purine-pyrimidine representations of the different genes of the corresponding genomes are quantified using Hurst exponent, Shannon entropy and density estimation of different nucleotides including GC content, in order to draw a comparison and contrast among the ten genomes of different types of CoVs which include MERS, SARS-CoV, HKU1 (Human Coronavirus) and associated their genes.
