Command line arguments

   Standard (Mandatory) qualifiers:
  [-sequence]          seqall     Sequence(s) filename and optional format, or
                                  reference (input USA)
  [-outfile]           outfile    [*.showfeat] Output file name

   Additional (Optional) qualifiers:
   -sourcematch        string     [*] By default any feature source in the
                                  feature table is shown. You can set this to
                                  match any feature source you wish to show.
                                  The source name is usually either the name
                                  of the program that detected the feature or
                                  it is the feature table (eg: EMBL) that the
                                  feature came from.
                                  The source may be wildcarded by using '*'.
                                  If you wish to show more than one source,
                                  separate their names with the character '|',
                                  eg:
                                  gene* | embl (Any string is accepted)
   -typematch          string     [*] By default any feature type in the
                                  feature table is shown. You can set this to
                                  match any feature type you wish to show.
                                  See http://www3.ebi.ac.uk/Services/WebFeat/
                                  for a list of the EMBL feature types and see
                                  Appendix A of the Swissprot user manual in
                                  http://www.expasy.ch/txt/userman.txt for a
                                  list of the Swissprot feature types.
                                  The type may be wildcarded by using '*'.
                                  If you wish to show more than one type,
                                  separate their names with the character '|',
                                  eg:
                                  *UTR | intron (Any string is accepted)
   -tagmatch           string     [*] Tags are the types of extra values that
                                  a feature may have. For example in the EMBL
                                  feature table, a 'CDS' type of feature may
                                  have the tags '/codon', '/codon_start',
                                  '/db_xref', '/EC_number', '/evidence',
                                  '/exception', '/function', '/gene',
                                  '/label', '/map', '/note', '/number',
                                  '/partial', '/product', '/protein_id',
                                  '/pseudo', '/standard_name', '/translation',
                                  '/transl_except', '/transl_table', or
                                  '/usedin'. Some of these tags also have
                                  values, for example '/gene' can have the
                                  value of the gene name.
                                  By default any feature tag in the feature
                                  table is shown. You can set this to match
                                  any feature tag you wish to show.
                                  The tag may be wildcarded by using '*'.
                                  If you wish to show more than one tag,
                                  separate their names with the character '|',
                                  eg:
                                  gene | label (Any string is accepted)
   -valuematch         string     [*] Tag values are the values associated
                                  with a feature tag. Tags are the types of
                                  extra values that a feature may have. For
                                  example in the EMBL feature table, a 'CDS'
                                  type of feature may have the tags '/codon',
                                  '/codon_start', '/db_xref', '/EC_number',
                                  '/evidence', '/exception', '/function',
                                  '/gene', '/label', '/map', '/note',
                                  '/number', '/partial', '/product',
                                  '/protein_id', '/pseudo', '/standard_name',
                                  '/translation', '/transl_except',
                                  '/transl_table', or '/usedin'. Only some of
                                  these tags can have values, for example
                                  '/gene' can have the value of the gene name.
                                  By default any feature tag value in the
                                  feature table is shown. You can set this to
                                  match any feature tag valueyou wish to show.
                                  The tag value may be wildcarded by using
                                  '*'.
                                  If you wish to show more than one tag value,
                                  separate their names with the character
                                  '|', eg:
                                  pax* | 10 (Any string is accepted)
   -sort               menu       [start] Sort features by Type, Start or
                                  Source, Nosort (don't sort - use input
                                  order) or join coding regions together and
                                  leave other features in the input order
                                  (Values: source (Sort by Source); start
                                  (Sort by Start position); type (Sort by
                                  Type); nosort (No sorting done))
   -joinfeatures       boolean    [N] Join coding regions together
   -annotation         range      [If this is left blank, then no annotation
                                  is added.] Regions to annotate by marking.
                                  If this is left blank, then no annotation is
                                  added.
                                  A set of regions is specified by a set of
                                  pairs of positions followed by optional
                                  text.
                                  The positions are integers.
                                  They are followed by any text (but not
                                  digits when on the command-line).
                                  Examples of region specifications are:
                                  24-45 new domain 56-78 match to Mouse
                                  1-100 First part 120-156 oligo
                                  A file of ranges to annotate (one range per
                                  line) can be specified as '@filename'.

   Advanced (Unprompted) qualifiers:
   -html               boolean    [N] Use HTML formatting
   -[no]id             boolean    [Y] Set this to be false if you do not wish
                                  to display the ID name of the sequence.
   -[no]description    boolean    [Y] Set this to be false if you do not wish
                                  to display the description of the sequence.
   -[no]scale          boolean    [Y] Set this to be false if you do not wish
                                  to display the scale line.
   -width              integer    [60] You can expand (or contract) the width
                                  of the ASCII-character graphics display of
                                  the positions of the features using this
                                  value.
                                  For example, a width of 80 characters would
                                  cover a standard page width and a width a 10
                                  characters would be nearly unreadable.
                                  If the width is set to less than 4, the
                                  graphics lines and the scale line will not
                                  be displayed. (Integer 0 or more)
   -collapse           boolean    [N] If this is set, then features from the
                                  same source and of the same type and sense
                                  are all printed on the same line. For
                                  instance if there are several features from
                                  the EMBL feature table (ie. the same source)
                                  which are all of type 'exon' in the same
                                  sense, then they will all be displayed on
                                  the same line. This makes it hard to
                                  distinguish overlapping features.
                                  If this is set to false then each feature is
                                  displayed on a separate line making it
                                  easier to distinguish where features start
                                  and end.
   -[no]forward        boolean    [Y] Set this to be false if you do not wish
                                  to display forward sense features.
   -[no]reverse        boolean    [Y] Set this to be false if you do not wish
                                  to display reverse sense features.
   -[no]unknown        boolean    [Y] Set this to be false if you do not wish
                                  to display unknown sense features. (ie.
                                  features with no directionality - all
                                  protein features are of this type and some
                                  nucleic features (for example, CG-rich
                                  regions)).
   -strand             boolean    [N] Set this if you wish to display the
                                  strand of the features. Protein features are
                                  always directionless (indicated by '0'),
                                  forward is indicated by '+' and reverse is
                                  '-'.
   -origin             boolean    [N] Set this if you wish to display the
                                  origin of the features.
                                  The source name is usually either the name
                                  of the program that detected the feature or
                                  it is the name of the feature table (eg:
                                  EMBL) that the feature came from.
   -position           boolean    [N] Set this if you wish to display the
                                  start and end position of the features. If
                                  several features are being displayed on the
                                  same line, then the start and end positions
                                  will be joined by a comma, for example:
                                  '189-189,225-225'.
   -[no]type           boolean    [Y] Set this to be false if you do not wish
                                  to display the type of the features.
   -tags               boolean    [N] Set this to be false if you do not wish
                                  to display the tags and values of the
                                  features.
   -[no]values         boolean    [Y] Set this to be false if you do not wish
                                  to display the tag values of the features.
                                  If this is set to be false, only the tag
                                  names will be displayed. If the tags are not
                                  displayed, then the values will not be
                                  displayed. The value of the 'translation'
                                  tag is never displayed as it is often
                                  extremely long.
   -stricttags         boolean    [N] By default if any tag/value pair in a
                                  feature matches the specified tag and value,
                                  then all the tags/value pairs of that
                                  feature will be displayed. If this is set to
                                  be true, then only those tag/value pairs in
                                  a feature that match the specified tag and
                                  value will be displayed.

Standard (Mandatory) qualifiers Allowed values Default
[-sequence]
(Parameter 1)
Sequence(s) filename and optional format, or reference (input USA) Readable sequence(s) Required
[-outfile]
(Parameter 2)
Output file name Output file <*>.showfeat
Additional (Optional) qualifiers Allowed values Default
-sourcematch By default any feature source in the feature table is shown. You can set this to match any feature source you wish to show. The source name is usually either the name of the program that detected the feature or it is the feature table (eg: EMBL) that the feature came from. The source may be wildcarded by using '*'. If you wish to show more than one source, separate their names with the character '|', eg: gene* | embl Any string is accepted *
-typematch By default any feature type in the feature table is shown. You can set this to match any feature type you wish to show. See http://www3.ebi.ac.uk/Services/WebFeat/ for a list of the EMBL feature types and see Appendix A of the Swissprot user manual in http://www.expasy.ch/txt/userman.txt for a list of the Swissprot feature types. The type may be wildcarded by using '*'. If you wish to show more than one type, separate their names with the character '|', eg: *UTR | intron Any string is accepted *
-tagmatch Tags are the types of extra values that a feature may have. For example in the EMBL feature table, a 'CDS' type of feature may have the tags '/codon', '/codon_start', '/db_xref', '/EC_number', '/evidence', '/exception', '/function', '/gene', '/label', '/map', '/note', '/number', '/partial', '/product', '/protein_id', '/pseudo', '/standard_name', '/translation', '/transl_except', '/transl_table', or '/usedin'. Some of these tags also have values, for example '/gene' can have the value of the gene name. By default any feature tag in the feature table is shown. You can set this to match any feature tag you wish to show. The tag may be wildcarded by using '*'. If you wish to show more than one tag, separate their names with the character '|', eg: gene | label Any string is accepted *
-valuematch Tag values are the values associated with a feature tag. Tags are the types of extra values that a feature may have. For example in the EMBL feature table, a 'CDS' type of feature may have the tags '/codon', '/codon_start', '/db_xref', '/EC_number', '/evidence', '/exception', '/function', '/gene', '/label', '/map', '/note', '/number', '/partial', '/product', '/protein_id', '/pseudo', '/standard_name', '/translation', '/transl_except', '/transl_table', or '/usedin'. Only some of these tags can have values, for example '/gene' can have the value of the gene name. By default any feature tag value in the feature table is shown. You can set this to match any feature tag valueyou wish to show. The tag value may be wildcarded by using '*'. If you wish to show more than one tag value, separate their names with the character '|', eg: pax* | 10 Any string is accepted *
-sort Sort features by Type, Start or Source, Nosort (don't sort - use input order) or join coding regions together and leave other features in the input order
source (Sort by Source)
start (Sort by Start position)
type (Sort by Type)
nosort (No sorting done)
start
-joinfeatures Join coding regions together Boolean value Yes/No No
-annotation Regions to annotate by marking. If this is left blank, then no annotation is added. A set of regions is specified by a set of pairs of positions followed by optional text. The positions are integers. They are followed by any text (but not digits when on the command-line). Examples of region specifications are: 24-45 new domain 56-78 match to Mouse 1-100 First part 120-156 oligo A file of ranges to annotate (one range per line) can be specified as '@filename'. Sequence range If this is left blank, then no annotation is added.
Advanced (Unprompted) qualifiers Allowed values Default
-html Use HTML formatting Boolean value Yes/No No
-[no]id Set this to be false if you do not wish to display the ID name of the sequence. Boolean value Yes/No Yes
-[no]description Set this to be false if you do not wish to display the description of the sequence. Boolean value Yes/No Yes
-[no]scale Set this to be false if you do not wish to display the scale line. Boolean value Yes/No Yes
-width You can expand (or contract) the width of the ASCII-character graphics display of the positions of the features using this value. For example, a width of 80 characters would cover a standard page width and a width a 10 characters would be nearly unreadable. If the width is set to less than 4, the graphics lines and the scale line will not be displayed. Integer 0 or more 60
-collapse If this is set, then features from the same source and of the same type and sense are all printed on the same line. For instance if there are several features from the EMBL feature table (ie. the same source) which are all of type 'exon' in the same sense, then they will all be displayed on the same line. This makes it hard to distinguish overlapping features. If this is set to false then each feature is displayed on a separate line making it easier to distinguish where features start and end. Boolean value Yes/No No
-[no]forward Set this to be false if you do not wish to display forward sense features. Boolean value Yes/No Yes
-[no]reverse Set this to be false if you do not wish to display reverse sense features. Boolean value Yes/No Yes
-[no]unknown Set this to be false if you do not wish to display unknown sense features. (ie. features with no directionality - all protein features are of this type and some nucleic features (for example, CG-rich regions)). Boolean value Yes/No Yes
-strand Set this if you wish to display the strand of the features. Protein features are always directionless (indicated by '0'), forward is indicated by '+' and reverse is '-'. Boolean value Yes/No No
-origin Set this if you wish to display the origin of the features. The source name is usually either the name of the program that detected the feature or it is the name of the feature table (eg: EMBL) that the feature came from. Boolean value Yes/No No
-position Set this if you wish to display the start and end position of the features. If several features are being displayed on the same line, then the start and end positions will be joined by a comma, for example: '189-189,225-225'. Boolean value Yes/No No
-[no]type Set this to be false if you do not wish to display the type of the features. Boolean value Yes/No Yes
-tags Set this to be false if you do not wish to display the tags and values of the features. Boolean value Yes/No No
-[no]values Set this to be false if you do not wish to display the tag values of the features. If this is set to be false, only the tag names will be displayed. If the tags are not displayed, then the values will not be displayed. The value of the 'translation' tag is never displayed as it is often extremely long. Boolean value Yes/No Yes
-stricttags By default if any tag/value pair in a feature matches the specified tag and value, then all the tags/value pairs of that feature will be displayed. If this is set to be true, then only those tag/value pairs in a feature that match the specified tag and value will be displayed. Boolean value Yes/No No

Input file format

Notes

Sequence regions to annotate may be specified as a set or ranges. Optionally, forward and reverse sense features, and features of unspecified sense (for example, CG-rich regions), are displayed. Optionally, features from the same source and of the same type and sense may all be printed on the same line, although this may make it hard to distinguish overlapping features.

By default, any features in the feature table are displayed however there are options to restrict this by feature source, type, feature tag and feature tag value.

Features may be sorted by Type, Start or Source, left unsorted (in which case the same order as the input is used), or features for the coding regions presented all together.

Various options control what else is displayed, including the sequence ID, description, scale line, width of display, strand of the features, feature source, start and end positions, feature type, and feature tags and tag values. By default if any tag/value pair in a feature matches the specified tag and value, then all the tags/value pairs of that feature will be displayed. If this is set to be true, then only those tag/value pairs in a feature that match the specified tag and value will be displayed.

Optionally, output can be in HTML.
