Going over a tutorial on how to extract genetic information from a gene database and calculate the GC content of the brca1 DNA sequence using Python. GC content is the percentage of guanine - cytosine base pairs within a given genomic sequence. Since protein coding genes are often G-C rich; regions of the genome which are high in G-C content known as isochores , are purported to be the best places to search for the existence of gene loci.
