I am trying to start a side project where I verify the claim that human and mice/monkey share 99% of their genes. I hope to learn the basics of doing genomic analysis.
I would like guidance about where I can find the sequences I need, and programming languages or applications that I should use. For the sequences, I would like for example, a list of all genes for each species. In the case that the programming language or application is foreign, some basic guidance would be helpful.
I have programming experience with matlab and python, and have learnt R previously, though forgotten. Would be able to learn a new language.
Alternatively, I think this may be a very large subject. If there is a link to a tutorial/lectures it will also be helpful.
Thanks in advance.
