The ever-present need of having to get your sequences’ complementary, reverse, and reverse complementary sequences sparked this project. Yes, you can find online tools, input your sequence, and get results. However, being that I constantly use the bash terminal, and the fact that it’s just simply faster to call a program, add an argument, and hit enter to get a result…well, a native tool is far better than looking for a GUI program.
That’s why I started this project, Sequencher.
The first commit is ready, simple, but effective. Call the program, adjunct your sequence, and receive your sequences’ complementary, reverse, and reverse complementary sequences. I also added the ability to add some parameters to only dispense each option (complementary, reverse, or reverse complementary).
Just an initial commit to what I hope becomes a much broader tool.
Sequence reverse, complement, rev-comp
Simple tool to retrieve reverse, complement, and/or reverse complement sequences from user input.
Call: $ sequencher ATGATCATGTACGCTA
-or- use flags [-r -c -rc] to retrieve desired sequence
$ sequencher [-r -c -rc] ATGATCATGTACGCTA
