bp_revtrans-motif - Reverse translate a Profam-like protein motif


Version 0.01


From a file: -i motifs.txt
Using pipes: < motifs.txt > output.txt
Using interactively at the command prompt:
   2.   NDNCAY(ATHTGG){2,3}


This script takes a protein motif as input and returns a degenerate oligonucleotide sequence corresponding to it. The main reason for doing this is to design degenerate primers that amplify a given sequence pattern.
The input motif consists of a string of one-letter residues, with any of the following syntactic elements:
[...] : Redundant position.
A position in which more than one residue is allowed. Example:
     ^^    ^^^^
[^...] : Negated position.
A position in which any residue is allowed, saved for those between brackets. Example:
(...){n,m,...} : Repeated motif.
A motif that is repeated n or m times. It can have any of the previous syntactic elements. Example:
The allowed letters are those that correspond to the 20 natural aminoacids, plus:
    B = N + D
    Z = Q + E
    X = All


-i input-file:

A file with a list of motifs to reverse translate.
