GC Content 1

A colleague has produced a file with one DNA sequence on each line. Download the file and load it into Python using numpy.loadtxt(). You will need to use the optional argument dtype = str to tell loadtxt() that the data is composed of strings.

Calculate the GC content of each sequence. The GC content is the percentage of bases that are either G or C (as a percentage of total base pairs). Print the result for each sequence as “The GC content of the sequence is XX.XX%” where XX.XX is the actual GC content.
