Handling sequence files

To merge (concatenate) individual sequence files into one file: cat *.seq > combined.seq To reverse complement the sequences: Save the code below as FileNameOfYourChoice.py from Bio.SeqRecord import SeqRecord def make_rc_record(record): “””Returns a new SeqRecord with the reverse complement sequence.””” return SeqRecord(seq = record.seq.reverse_complement(), \ id = “rc_” + record.id, \ description = “reverse complement”) from Bio import SeqIO # I…

PhD Grand Prix

Anne participated in the PhD Grand Prix of the Faculty of Natural Science and she was awarded the second prize for her presentation on nanowire-mediated iron uptake. During this competition, PhD candidates had to present their research to a braod audience within 5 minutes. They were judged by a jury and by the audience. A video of my performance can…
