In this paper, we propose a new method to analyze the difference and similarity of biological sequences, based on the fuzzy sets theory. Considering the sequence order and some chemical and structural properties, we present a computational method to cluster the biological sequences. By some examples, we show that the new method is relatively easy and we are able to compare the sequences of arbitrary lengths.
