Cell Array Analysis - sequences

I have a 1x59 cell array, each holding varying sequences of numbers from 1 to 28. I am trying to determine the percentages of movements between the transitions between one number in the sequence to another (i.e. 1 to 2, 2 to 1 etc.) which can later be used as weights for ploting a graph. My coding attempts have recommended that I omit the occasions that the value repeats itself (i.e. 1 to 1), however, that is a features of some of the examples. Is there a way to analyse the sequences within each cell array without having to omit self loops?

These kinds of tasks are clearer with intput/output examples that are similar to your actual data. "Sequence of numbers" is value. are they vectors? Multidimensional arrays? "Movements between the transitions" is vague - I can't picture what this means, even with the 2-1 1-2 example.

Hi Victoria,
As mentioned by Adam, the explanation is not clear. Provide more information on what is happening.

Doesn't the 'diff' function applied to the sequences deliver what you need?
