sequence file into a numeric file
Posted by sarish (sarish), 23 June 2005Need some help!!!
I have a DNA sequence file and would like to convert each nucleotide (from the file) into some number (say I assign A=0, T=1, G=2, C=3). It sounds quite simple but since I am new to perl I need some assistance.
It is basically converting a sequence file into a numeric file and having that in a array format. Each cell having a number relating to a nucleotide.
just in case if you have any idea please let me know.
Thanks in advance.

$all =~ tr /ATGC/0123/;
print FHO $all;
