HI, im having trouble with this task Write a perl script that will generate a new output file (“task1 output.txt”) which contains the sequence name, length, and GC-content for each sequence. There should be a header line which identifies the contents of columns (so the first line in the output file should be “SeqName Length GC-Content” or something similar). The GC-content of a sequence is defined as the percentage of bases that are G or C (from 0% to 100%), and a high GCcontent is associated with coding sequences.
Seq1 ACGT Then your output file should look like: SeqName Length GC-Content Seq1 4 50
I can do the in and out for the file handles, but im confused as to what to put in my while loop. and how will it know to match in the file ?
