rules for biofuel gene expression level-my project 4

i have given some rules by mining some features of fatty acid genes in cyanobacteria like length,GC content which defines the expression level i.e. amount of fatty acid in dry weight of these microalgae. These rules could be helpful for the future predictions or in wet lab research.I want to know the comments on this work...please let me know

    To Mdoori
    thanx for your appreciation and
    About the work: We have categorised cyanobacteria on the basis of the relative biomolecule amount in their dry weight given by Becker in 1994.Then prepared a data set for the genes (responsible for fatty acid synthesis,metabolism and transport) of cyanobacteria as they are expected to be responsible for the level of expression.This data set have attributes like number of base pairs in genes,Molecular weight,GC content, number of each amino acids.Then we mined these 2 categories to give decision trees. Then some rules from the trees.

    According to us these rules can be helpful for future categorisation and in wet lab work also.

    If I can provide you with additional information please let me know.

    Nice start...

    I have done DNA & Genome based analysis of 3 algae.
    I am trying to do some important changes in the algae:

    1. More lipid storage
    2. High immunity power
    3. Nutrition needed
