Practice 0

Cut out a piece of sequence from specific area of Mycoplasma genitalium whole genome and save it to a file.

0.1 - Genome file

First obtain a flatfile for M. genitalium genome (~0.6 Mbp).


0.2 - Cutting out specific area of genome

If the cut out areas were as follows:

127178 - 128811,237246 - 239251

Then make two files that possess sequence 127178th base through 128811st and 237246th base through 239251st base, respectively.

An example of cutting out base from 100th base to 200th.

Copy and paste DNA sequence form a genome file using text editor (such as emacs) and save it to a file.


The cut out area for students are as follow.

11152 - 12140 , 136079 - 137367

Preview of the Practice 1

Practice 1-1 [Basic]

Write a program that counts all the number of each base from given specific area of genome.

Practice 1-2 [Basic]

Refine previous program that enables to load whole genome sequence of M. genitalium and compare the compositional difference (bias).

Practice 1-3 [Advanced]

Two-letter nucleotides are called dinucleotide and there are 16 types of nucleotides as a combination of four types of bases. In Practice 1-3, modify the previous program for dinucleotide frequency analysis. Check out the entire dinucleotide frequency pattern in the Mycoplasma genome and compare with the result for the Practice 1-2.
