famap [-hV] -b mmapped-file [-t cvt] [fafile ...]
famap [-hV] -d mmapped-file [ord ...]
famap [-hV] -l mmapped-file [ord ...]


The program famap is part of the e-PCR suite and is used to build mmapped-file from FASTA files for reverse e-PCR searches


where cvt (conversion table) is one of:
off - as is (default)
n - nucleotide [acgtnACGTN] allowed,
N - nucleotide uppercase allowed [ACGTN]
nx - nucleotide with ambiguity codes allowed
NX - nucleotide with ambiguity codes uppercase


famap -tN -b genome.famap org/chr_*.fa

fahash -b genome.hash -w 12 -f3 ${PWD}/genome.famap

re-PCR -s genome.hash -n1 -g1 ACTATTGATGATGA AGGTAGATGTTTTT 120-200
