We propose the application of a recent vector space technique for the
analysis of DNA sequences. In this approach the similarity of two series
of symbols is measured by the dot products of vectors corresponding to
the given sequences. In this paper we demonstrate that this measure, depending
on the short-range properties of the sequences, may be used for identifying
different elements of the genome.
