By the end of this project, you will create a Python program using a jupyter interface that analyzes a group of viruses and plot a dendrogram based on similarities among them. The dendrogram that you will create will depend on the cumulative skew profile, which in turn depends on the nucleotide composition. You will use complete genome sequences for many viruses including, Corona, SARS, HIV, Zika, Dengue, enterovirus, and West Nile viruses.

Skills you will develop

  • Python Programming

  • Genomics

  • plotting
