Comparing 2 different-sized strings
I'm kind of new to Perl and I am comparing 2 strings of different size containing DNA nucleotides. I want the script to take the smaller string and locate it in the much larger string allowing for mismatches and providing me with the sequence it found in the larger string plus adjacent 5 nucleotides on either side.
So for example if I have 2 strings:
I want the script to take #1 and find the same sequence in #2 which is present but with 2 mismatches, along with 5 nucleotides on either side.
Thank you so much!
