NAME

alignment-translate -- Translate a DNA/RNA alignment into amino acids.

SYNOPSIS

alignment-translate [OPTIONS] < sequence-file [OPTIONS]

DESCRIPTION

Translate a DNA/RNA alignment into amino acids.

ALLOWED OPTIONS:

-h, --help
Produce help message
-g arg (=standard), --genetic-code arg (=standard)
Specify alternate genetic code.
-f arg (=1), --frame arg (=1)
Frame 1, 2, 3, -1, -2, or -3
-r, --reverse
Just return the reverse
-c, --complement
Just return the complement
-t arg (=yes), --translate arg (=yes)
Translate the sequences

EXAMPLES:

Translate DNA or RNA to amino acids in reading frame 1:

% alignment-translate < dna.fasta > aa.fasta

Give the reverse complement without translation:

% alignment-translate -rc --translate=no < dna.fasta > dna2.fasta

The following commands are identical:

% alignment-translate --frame=-2 < dna.fasta > aa2.fasta

% alignment-translate -rc --frame=2 < dna.fasta > aa2.fasta
