Homework Assignment #1

Submit this sequence to RepeatMasker. When you do, check the queue of jobs waiting to be processed by RepeatMasker. If there are more than just a couple of jobs, then get the masked sequence here. Then submit the masked sequence to Blast. Make two blast searches, one with blastn against dbEST, and one with blastx against the nr database. Write a few sentences saying what you found.

The results are due on Wednesday, August. 30. You will sign up for 5 minutes to see Laura Elnitski, who will discuss your results with you and evaluate them.
