This paper introduces a new way to define a genome rearrangement distance, using the concept of mean first passage time from probability theory. Crucially, this distance provides a genuine metric on genome space. We develop the theory and introduce a link to a graph-based zeta function. The approach is very general and can be applied to a wide variety of group-theoretic models of genome evolution.
