Today, we started to learn about DNA duplication, and mRNA and tRNA pairs, as well as the production of Amino Acids. I thought how this all worked systematically was fantastic, and it also made me realize that it could be easily scripted. So, here you go. mRNAutomator automatically returns the mRNA sequence, tRNA sequence, and Amino Acid pair for any given DNA sequence. You can get it here.
To use it, you’ll need to save ‘mRNAutomator.sh’ to your Desktop, and then follow these steps:
- If you’re on a Mac, open Terminal. If you’re not, get a real computer.
- Run this command:
3. Run this command:
chmod 755 *.sh
4. Run this command:
5. Enter this, and press ‘Return’:
6. Enter a DNA sequence, and enjoy!
