Function

Insert one sequence into another

Description

pasteseq inserts one sequence into another at a specified position and writes the new, combined sequence to an output file.

Usage

Here is a sample session with pasteseq

To insert the sequence 'tsw:flav_nossm' after position 67 in sequence 'tsw:amir_pseae' and write the results to the file 'amir_pseae.fasta':


% pasteseq tsw:amir_pseae tsw:flav_nossm -pos=67 
Insert one sequence into another
output sequence [amir_pseae.fasta]: 

Go to the input files for this example
Go to the output files for this example

Example 2

This does the same thing, but the output qualifier is explicitly used:


% pasteseq tsw:amir_pseae tsw:flav_nossm -out=amirplus.seq -pos=67 
Insert one sequence into another

Go to the output files for this example

Example 3

To insert the sequence 'tsw:flav_nossm' before the start of sequence 'tsw:amir_pseae' use -pos=0:


% pasteseq tsw:amir_pseae tsw:flav_nossm -out=amirplus.seq -pos=0 
Insert one sequence into another

Go to the output files for this example
