I am a computer scientist please dont fame me if this question sounds too simple to you. I'm aware that there are many software out there which allows you to search for fragments of DNA within a strand of sequences. Why do we need them? And how can we use these result? For instance
T T G C G A A A
I wanna find the motif of AAA with 100% threshold, in this instance position 6 - 9 would be my match, normally after researcher has the result what will he do to it? send it to BLAST?
Hope somebody can help me, thanks!
