Okay so I posted on here earlier about converting my excel file full of DNA sequences into a FASTA file for analysis with DNAsp.
I currently have columns containing 1)chromosome number 2) the DNA sequence..and I want to get
>chromosomenumber AGTAGAGATAGAGAGA.... >chromosome number AGTCGCTCGAGAGTC...
so..I got a couple of responses which basically told me off for using excel and not exploring other options to do this!
I have now downloaded Ruby (?!) and I am trying to get to grips with it using the tutorial. I am aware of a script to convert CSV files to FASTA...eg see link below
As I am a newbie to Ruby I am confused as to where I put my file name in this script, and how I get Ruby to find my file!
Can any kind person out there please look at this script and perhaps highlight the bits that I need to edit in order to get it to work for me?
Thanks very much x
