I have a problem in my bioinformatics class that I thought I was doing right, but someone else is getting a different answer. Here is the problem:
Given the following DNA sequence, 5'-GGATCGTGCCACCATCCACCATCGTTA-3', if two introns are in bases 3-9 and 15-22, what is the mRNA transcribed? Give the answer 5' to 3'. Note that the first base is base 1.
And here are the steps that I took:
- 5'-GG ATCGTGC CACCA TCCACCAT CGTTA-3' (remove the bolded)
- 5'-GGCACCACGTTA-3' (new string)
- take reverse complement
- swap T's with U's
Is this correct? Or where am I going wrong?
