I have a future project of interest. I have been examining trace
files of DNA sequencing. These consist of four colored plots of peaks. I
am very close to being able to abstract the data for a region of interest
(approximately 20 bases) from the *.ab1 files and plot it. These would be
troublesome reads that do not lend themselves to an automated call.
What I envision might be a place to display data *and* collect the
call, which would be of length 2 at most and restrict it to A, C, G, T, N,
combinations thereof, or missing. I would use SAS to assemble my data and
display it (i.e. a data step and a PLOT procedure). To what might I write
it? For instance, to HTML? Might I consider SCL? I might be more
enticed by a "display" that could be independent of SAS, but I also
conceive several advantages of write the call directly to a transistion
data set or directly to my data set of interest.
I appreciate any comments.
