Function

Displays protein sequences with features in pretty format

Description

showpep displays one or more protein sequences, with features, in a style suitable for publication. The output is sent to screen by default but can be written to file. You may pick a format from a list, alternatively, use the many options to control what is output and in what format. Optionally, the sequence feature table can be displayed. There are various other options for controlling how the sequence is displayed and numbered and the output can be formatted for HTML.

Usage

Here is a sample session with showpep


% showpep tsw:laci_ecoli -sbeg 1 -send 100 
Displays protein sequences with features in pretty format
Things to display
         0 : Enter your own list of things to display
         1 : Sequence only
         2 : Default sequence with features
         3 : Pretty sequence 4:Baroque
Display format [2]:

Example 2

The standard list of output formats are only a small selection of the possible ways in which a sequence might be displayed. Precise control over the output format is acheived by selecting the qualifier '-format 0' (Option 0 in the list of things to display). For example, by choosing format '0' and then specifying that we want to display the things: 'b,t,s', we will output the sequence in the following way:


% showpep tsw:laci_ecoli -sbeg 1 -send 120 
Displays protein sequences with features in pretty format
Things to display
         0 : Enter your own list of things to display
         1 : Sequence only
         2 : Default sequence with features
         3 : Pretty sequence 4:Baroque
Display format [2]: 0
Specify your own things to display
         S : Sequence
         B : Blank line
         T : Ticks line
         N : Number ticks line
         F : Features
         A : Annotation
Enter a list of things to display [B,N,T,S,A,F]: b,t,s

Example 4

Protein sequence can be displayed in three-letter codes. (The codes are displayed downwards, so the first code is 'Met'):


% showpep tsw:rs24_fugru -three -format 2 
Displays protein sequences with features in pretty format

Example 5

Number the sequence lines in the margin:


% showpep tsw:laci_ecoli -sbeg 1 -send 100 -format 1 -number 
Displays protein sequences with features in pretty format
Output file [laci_ecoli.showpep]: 

Go to the output files for this example

Example 6

Start the numbering at a specified value ('123' in this case):


% showpep tsw:laci_ecoli -sbeg 1 -send 100 -format 1 -number -offset 123 
Displays protein sequences with features in pretty format
Output file [laci_ecoli.showpep]: 

Go to the output files for this example

Example 7

Make selected regions uppercase. (Use '-slower' to force the rest of the sequence to be lowercase).


% showpep tsw:laci_ecoli -sbeg 1 -send 100 -format 1 -slower -upper '17-17,22-22' 
Displays protein sequences with features in pretty format
Output file [laci_ecoli.showpep]: 

Go to the output files for this example

Example 8

Add your own annotation to the display:


% showpep tsw:laci_ecoli -sbeg 1 -send 100 -format 2 -send 120 -annotation '6-25 binding site 17-17 SNP 22-22 SNP'

   -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)
   -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.

                                  If you wish to show more than one type,
                                  separate their names with the character '|',
                                  eg:

                                  If both minscore and maxscore are zero (the
                                  default), then any score is ignored (Any
                                  numeric value)
   -tagmatch           string     [*] Tags are the types of extra values that
                                  a feature may have. 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:

   -valuematch         string     [*] Tag values are the values associated
                                  with a feature tag. Tags are the types of
                                  extra values that a feature may have. 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:

   -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.

Examples of region specifications are: 24-45, 56-78 1:45, 67=99;765..888 1,5,8,10,23,45,57,99 Sequence range If this is left blank, then the sequence case is left alone.
-highlight range Regions to colour if formatting for HTML. If this is left blank, then the sequence is left alone. A set of regions is specified by a set of pairs of positions. The positions are integers. They are followed by any valid HTML font colour. Examples of region specifications are: 24-45 blue 56-78 orange 1-100 green 120-156 red A file of ranges to colour (one range per line) can be specified as '@filename'. Sequence range full sequence
-annotation range 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.
-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 *
-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 *
-minscore float Minimum score of feature to display (see also maxscore) Any numeric value 0.0
-maxscore float Maximum score of feature to display. If both minscore and maxscore are zero (the default), then any score is ignored Any numeric value 0.0
-tagmatch string Tags are the types of extra values that a feature may have. 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 *
-valuematch string Tag values are the values associated with a feature tag. Tags are the types of extra values that a feature may have. 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 *
-stricttags boolean 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

You can specify a file of ranges to display in uppercase by giving the '-uppercase' qualifier the value '@' followed by the name of the file containing the ranges. (eg: '-upper @myfile').

The format of the range file is:

An example range file is:

          
# this is my set of ranges
12   23                           
 4   5       this is like 12-23, but smaller
67   10348   interesting region

You can specifiy a file of ranges to highlight in a different colour when outputting in HTML format (using the '-html' qualifier) by giving the '-highlight' qualifier the value '@' followed by the name of the file containing the ranges. (eg: '-highlight @myfile').

The format of this file is very similar to the format of the above uppercase range file, except that the text after the start and end positions is used as the HTML colour name. This colour name is used 'as is' when specifying the colour in HTML in a '' construct, (where 'xxx' is the name of the colour).

The standard names of HTML font colours are given in:
http://http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/types.html and http://www.ausmall.com.au/freegraf/ncolour2.htm and http://mindprod.com/htmlcolours.html (amongst other places).

An example highlight range file is:

          
# this is my set of ranges
12   23         red
 4   5          darkturquoise
67   10348      #FFE4E1

You can specify a file of ranges to annotate by giving the '-annotate' qualifier the value '@' followed by the name of the file containing the ranges. (eg: '-annotate @myfile').

The format of this file is very similar to the format of the above highlight range file, except that the text after the start and end positions is used as the displayed text of the annotated region.

An example annotation range file is:

# this is my set of ranges
12   23         exon 1
 4   5          CAP site
67   10348      exon 2

Most of the variants of the output format have already been described in the 'Description' and 'Usage' sections, but here is some more just to fill out this section.

The output format is extremely variable and under the control of the qualifiers used.

The sequence can be formatted for HTML display by using the '-html' qualifier. The top and tail html tags <HEAD>, <BODY> etc. are not included as it is expected that the output of this program will be included in a more extensive HTML page and so these parts are left to the user to provide.

The name of the sequence is displayed, followed by the description of the sequence. These can be turned off with the '-noname' and '-nodescription' qualifiers.

Then the sequence is output, one line at a time. Any associated information to be displayed is also output above and below the sequence line, as specified by the '-format' and or '-things' qualifiers. (See the 'Description' section for detals).

The margins around the sequence are specified by the use of the '-margin' qaulifier and any numbering of the sequence and its translations are placed in the margin.

Data files

EMBOSS data files are distributed with the application and stored in the standard EMBOSS data directory, which is defined by the EMBOSS environment variable EMBOSS_DATA.

To see the available EMBOSS data files, run:

% embossdata -showall

To fetch one of the data files (for example 'Exxx.dat') into your current directory for you to inspect or modify, run:


% embossdata -fetch -file Exxx.dat

Users can provide their own data files in their own directories. Project specific files can be put in the current directory, or for tidier directory listings in a subdirectory called ".embossdata". Files for all EMBOSS runs can be put in the user's home directory, or again in a subdirectory called ".embossdata".

The directories are searched in the following order:

The Genetic Code data files are based on the NCBI genetic code tables. Their names and descriptions are:

EGC.0
Standard (Differs from GC.1 in that it only has initiation site 'AUG')
EGC.1
Standard
EGC.2
Vertebrate Mitochodrial
EGC.3
Yeast Mitochondrial
EGC.4
Mold, Protozoan, Coelenterate Mitochondrial and Mycoplasma/Spiroplasma
EGC.5
Invertebrate Mitochondrial
EGC.6
Ciliate Macronuclear and Dasycladacean
EGC.9
Echinoderm Mitochondrial
EGC.10
Euplotid Nuclear
EGC.11
Bacterial
EGC.12
Alternative Yeast Nuclear
EGC.13
Ascidian Mitochondrial
EGC.14
Flatworm Mitochondrial
EGC.15
Blepharisma Macronuclear
EGC.16
Chlorophycean Mitochondrial
EGC.21
Trematode Mitochondrial
EGC.22
Scenedesmus obliquus
EGC.23
Thraustochytrium Mitochondrial

The format of these files is very simple.

It consists of several lines of optional comments, each starting with a '#' character.

These are followed the line: 'Genetic Code [n]', where 'n' is the number of the genetic code file.

This is followed by the description of the code and then by four lines giving the IUPAC one-letter code of the translated amino acid, the start codons (indicdated by an 'M') and the three bases of the codon, lined up one on top of the other.

For example:

The EMBOSS REBASE restriction enzyme data files are stored in directory 'data/REBASE/*' under the EMBOSS installation directory.

These files must first be set up using the program 'rebaseextract'. Running 'rebaseextract' may be the job of your system manager.

The data files are stored in the REBASE directory of the standard EMBOSS data directory. The names are:

The column information is described at the top of the data files

The reported enzyme from any one group of isoschizomers (the prototype) is specified in the REBASE database and the information is held in the data file 'embossre.equ'. You may edit this file to set your own preferred prototype, if you wish.

The format of the file "embossre.equ" is
Enzyme-name Prototype-name

i.e. two columns of enzyme names separated by a space. The first name of the pair of enzymes is the name that is not preferred and the second is the preferred (prototype) name.

Notes

One or more things may be selected for display from a menu (-things option). The order of specified characters (upper or lower case) determines the order in the output:

s	Sequence
b	Blank line
t	Ticks line
n	Number ticks line
f	Features (from the feature table or from a command line -ufo file)
a	User Annotation

Alternatively, there is a selection of pre-defined formats to choose from. The codes from above used in the list of standard formats are:

Sequence only:                  S A
Default sequence:               B N T S A F
Pretty sequence:                B N T S A
Baroque:                        B N T S T A F

The default standard format displays the following: for every new line that the sequence starts to write, the output display will contain first a blank line (b), then the position numbers of the ticks (n) then the ticks every 10 characters (t) then the sequence itself (s) then any user-supplied annotation (a) then the features from the feature table (f). Subsequent lines of the sequence output will repeat this format.

The output can be formatted for HTML. If the output is being formatted for HTML, then specified regions of the sequence can be displayed in any valid HTML colours.

If the sequence is in SwissProt format, the feature table of the sequence can be displayed with the sequence. GFF file features can also be displayed if they are included on the command line using -ufo=file.

Other display options include: The displayed sequence can be numbered either by numbering the start and ending positions, or by placing a ruler with ticks above or below the sequence. An initial position to start the numbering from can be set. The width of a line, and width of a margin around the sequence reserved for numbering can be set. Specified regions of the sequence can be displayed in uppercase to highlight them.
