DNA Sequencing!!! :)

DNA Sequencing Data!!!

While going through the DNA activity, an importance was to see which patient's sequence matched that of a normal one. In doing so, it was found that Abby and Bob had the most similar sequence to the normal. This would expect to have a normal state, which means most likely no diseases. Carol on the other hand had a very low percentage compared to the normal sequence. With this being said, she would most likely be more in the disease state. After review the sequences together, it was found that in Carol's DNA a letter was skipped somewhere along the way making everything else in her DNA shift. Just the slight factor of a letter being gone made a huge difference in this case for Carol.
