Logic: I'm trying to do this in such a way that I check the database first, then I check the DNA sequence to see if that information corresponds to any of the information in my database.
I want to convert all my numbers that are, by default of using
DictReader, strings to integers. Then I can multiply my current STR by the number associate with that person
'AGATC' * 2 as it is for Alice in
THEN check if that matches any part of my DNA sequence.
Issue: Of course firstly I'll need to convert my actual numbers to ints. The way I'm iterating over my
dict I'm always hitting my
name column. How can I exclude this without removing it as I'll need it as a reference later?
