1. FASTA uses a lookup table as a rapid way to find common letters and words in the same order and of approximately the same separation in two sequences. Produce a lookup table for single amino acids in the following two protein sequences, and then explain how this information will be used to determine what the alignment should be.
sequence 1: ACNGTSCHQE
sequence 2: GCHCLSAGQD
Amino Acid Protein in Sequence 1 Protein in Sequence 2 Offset Value*
*Offset value is defined as the value in sequence 1 less the value in sequence 2
