This chapter introduces various visualization (i.e., graphical representation) schemes of symbolic DNA sequences, which are basically represented by character strings in conventional sequence databases. Several visualization schemes are reviewed and their characterizations are summarized for comparison. Moreover, further potential applications based on the visualized sequences are discussed. By understanding the visualization process, the researchers will be able to analyze DNA sequences by designing signal processing algorithms for specific purposes such as sequence alignment, feature extraction, and sequence clustering, etc.
