Dear help group,   

    Just fyi a markov chain is a sequence of transitions between states (say A,T,G,C - on a gene) with a given probability for each transition. In this case there'd be 16 different kinds, each with a different weight.     Given a transition matrix (4x4) filled with all transition probabilities of course, how can I generate a random sequence of a given length, say 200?
