I have 5 mtDNAsequences of bird subspecies and I would like to convert them to mtRNA, I already have a script that could be used for that. I need someone to expand upon this script. I need to use some regular expressions to compute which mtrna sequence is closest to the one I am trying to compare it to. Then, I need to alter my closest sequence to find and replace the comparison sequence and print the results. I don't think it would take more than two hours to assemble the script.
Can anyone take a look at it today?
The sequences I'm looking at
#!/usr/bin/perl -w # Transcribing DNA into RNA # The mtDNA $mtDNA = ; # Print the mtDNA onto the screen print "Here is the starting DNA:\n\n"; print "$mtDNA\n\n"; # Transcribe the mtDNA to mtRNA by substituting all T's with U's. $mtRNA = $mtDNA; $mtRNA =~ s/T/U/g; # Print the mtRNA onto the screen print "Here is the result of transcribing the mtDNA to mtRNA:\n\n"; print "$mtRNA\n";
