Hi I need the solution to this assignment with documentation and explanation of steps in the program.
Would need java source, or ready to copy/paste txt.

DNA Sequences ( Due 22 Mar 2013 )
DNA or deoxyribonucleic acid is a nucleic acid that contains genetic information. It is responsible for propagation of inherited traits. DNA is organized as two complementary strands that Watson and Crick called the Double Helix. Each strand is built out of nucleotides called bases of which there are four - adenine (A), thymine (T), cytosine (C), and guanine (G). The bases of the two complementary strands that make up the DNA pair up in this order: A+T, T+A, C+G, and G+C. Strands have directionality and the sequence order does matter. Genetic information is determined by the sequence of bases along the strand.
DNA has played an important role in research in computer science. For example research in string searching algorithms has been motivated by finding sequences in DNAs. For the present assignment, we are interested in finding the longest common base sequence in two DNA strands. Each strand is represented by the sequence of letters A, T, C, and G. For the two strands ACTG and TGCA the longest common sequence is TG. It is quite possible for two strands not to have any common sequence (a sequence of 1 base does not count). Also there could be two or more common sequences that have the same longest length.
In your program you will open a text file called dna.txt. The first line of data is an integer number n that gives the number of pairs of DNA to follow. You will read one pair of DNA strings at a time. The maximum length of each string is 80 characters. Assume that each string consists only of characters 'A', 'T', 'C' and 'G'. It is acceptable if a string is in lower case or is in mixed upper and lower case. Convert both strings to upper case. Print out the longest common sequence(s) for the two strings. If there is more than one longest common sequence then print each of those sequences on separate lines. The sequences should be left aligned. If there is no common sequence your program should output No Common Sequence Found.
Sample output session would look like:
Longest Common Sequences
Pair 1: TCG
Pair 2: TGAT
Pair 3: No Common Sequence Found
We will be looking at good documentation, descriptive variable names, and adherence to the coding convention mentioned below. Your file DNA.java will have the following header:Attachments
