can someone help me on how to write a sequence got from KEGG in fasta format. I am a student new to bioinformatics.
Are you asking for what FASTA format is, or something about programming? Could you post the code that you are using to get the sequence from KEGG?
am trying to work on my assignment but am having trouble in completing it since am new to the bioinformatics class. Below is the question that am trying to finish, its not about programming as such. Hope you find it well.
Qtn: Visit the KEGG website http://www.genome.jp/kegg/catalog/org_list.html Click hsa to open the Human Genome database http://www.genome.jp/kegg-bin/show_organism?org=hsa. Find the melanin-concentrating hormone receptor 2 gene and download its sequences in FASTA format. Now visit the NCBI-BLAST database http://blast.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/Blast.cgi and use any of the sequences you have downloaded to perform;
a) Nucleotide blast
b) Protein blast
In performing each of your BLAST-searches, write-down the query, and the subject with the highest score; for the latter, what is the E-value and % Identity?
currently am on the part of writing it in FASTA format and am stack.
