Function

Reverse and complement a nucleotide sequence

Description

revseq reads one or more nucleotide sequences and writes to file the reverse complement (also known as the anti-sense or reverse sense) of each sequence. It can also output just the reversed sequence or just the complement of the sequence.

Usage

Here is a sample session with revseq

To create the reverse complement (reverse sense) of 'tembl:x65923' in the file 'x65923.rev':


% revseq tembl:x65923 x65923.rev 
Reverse and complement a nucleotide sequence

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

Example 2

To create the complement of 'tembl:x65923' in the file 'x65923.rev':


% revseq tembl:x65923 x65923.rev -norev 
Reverse and complement a nucleotide sequence

Go to the output files for this example

Example 3

To create the reverse of 'tembl:x65923' in the file 'x65923.rev':


% revseq tembl:x65923 x65923.rev -nocomp 
Reverse and complement a nucleotide sequence

Go to the output files for this example
