I am a beginner in perl programming. I have three sequences like $a=AAATGCCTT, $b=AAAAGCGTC and $c=AAAGGCGTC, which differ
at positions 4, 7 and 9 but the rest are alike. Is it possible to use perl code to find
the total number of positions where they differ and where
they are alike? In this case, the answer will be 3 (dissimilar) and 6 (similar), respectively. Can any perlmonk
suggest me which perl code will compare these sequences for matching?
print"\n No. of matched positions=$match.\n
No. of non-matched positions=$nonmatch.\n";
The answer should look like:
No. of matched positions=3.
No. of non-matched positions=6.
