Use the alignment tool PipMaker to align two sequences. You will need the following input data.
A goal of this assignment is to see how well one can predict the positions of many of the exons (nearly all coding exons) by visual inspection of the pip. Run Genscan on the human sequence. Use it to create a file of exon positions, for input to PipMaker, by carefully following directions at the PipMaker instructions site. The annotations in the exons file will appear on the top horizontal line of the pip as vertical boxes above each annotated exon and will have a number that corresponds to the number of the exon within the gene. To summarize, you will identify the exons using Genscan, create your exons file, and submit the genomic sequences, repeats files, and exons file to retrieve your finished output. You can leave the other boxes in the entry form blank.
