Questions
Consider the FASTA formatted file named 20180910 Problem Set 1 Dataset.txt containing 12 sequences. Perform a
multiple sequence alignment using mafft making sure that the output is in Clustal format.
1. How many base pairs did each of the sequences contain?
2. How many fully conserved positions were there in the resulting multiple alignment?
3. What is the longest substring that is fully conserved in all of the sequences in the resulting alignment?
4. Given the alignment, what pair of sequences have the most number of matched regions?
Perform a sequence database search using blastn in the NCBI website on default settings on each of the sequences
stored in the file.
5. From what organism did the nucleotide sequences (most likely) come from?
6. What is the over-all theme of the data set? (e.g. The data set contains nucleotide sequences sampled from the
