Software Traces and Logs as Proteins

In the past, we introduced structural and behavioral memory and software trace analysis patterns as DNA of software behavior. This metaphor can be illustrated in the following diagram:

Now, we introduce another metaphor: software traces and logs are “proteins” generated by software code. Such “proteins” are mapped to software functionality:

There are many similarities between protein structural analysis and that of traces and logs. For example, sequence motifs are analogous to Motif trace analysis pattern (that originally came from motives in mathematics), and structural motifs are possible via Characteristic Message Blocks and Activity Regions or any other arrangement of structural patterns:
