CS 370 Graphics Project on DNA


Create a graphic of (part of) the double helix of a DNA molecule.  Read a sequence of bases from a file for one strand, and have your program determine its complement.  You can generate a stylized graphic with the strands pictured in one color with a spiral, ribbon look and each base pictured as a line segment or rectangle with a different color for each type of base (A, C, G, T).

Develop your work in a stepwise fashion.  Get one function working before adding another.
