Calculating and Visualizing Sequence Statistics
Follow the instructions in this demo file to download a sequence and calculate and visualize its statistics. Save all the commands in a script file called "yourname_lab8_1.m".
Modify the script to analyze a different sequence, human insulin receptor gene with genbank accession number 'M10051'. Notice the ORF of this gene is different from those in the mitochondria example, so that you need to modify the code that extracts the ORF of interest (the longest ORF). Also create a Microsoft word file called "yourname_lab8_1", and add all figures generated by the script to the word document. Submit both the modified script and the word document.
Sequence Alignment and BLAST Search
Follow the instructions in this example to download and compare two genes using sequence alignment. Save all the Matlab commands in a script file called "yourname_lab8_2.m". Remember adding comments in the scripts.
