Here I've got a text file containing a list of SNPs called at a particular locus from a set of ~1000 .var files. I'd like to investigate the frequency of each SNP within the file, but have zero knowledge of shell programming or python. I was wondering if someone can help me with this!
Short answer? Get a bioinformatician near you to help you out and observe them, especially the questions they ask. When you're just starting, you're better off with in-person help.
Thank you for your reply. I'm just seeking a shell script (or sth similar in python) that I can mess with it to get the job done!
Sth to start with!
I appreciate that - that is a good approach. This will take some time, but I can help you with this. I'll add the rest of my reply to an answer and update it as you progress.
