BASH shell to work with. Your employer has decided to investigate the role of FGF in stem cells. “FGFs appear to promote self-renewing proliferation and inhibit cellular senescence in nearly all tissues tested to date.” Your company recently received a donated batch of human stem cells and some sample sequence data. You are tasked on showing your employer how you will go about finding if the cells you received have the gene of interest only using BASH. (you are not aware of what type of stem cells you received) NOTE: we are not worried about the output right now rather your ability to solve the problem given the data and the tools given to you. Hints: You will have to find FGF proteins in UniprotKB that are from humans and have been reviewed You will create an MSA using a software that you downloaded in BASH 2 Create a pattern using the hidden Markov model software you downloaded in BASH 2 Then search for the pattern against the sample data you have received.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
