gp_findorf - print ORFs contained in a sequence


gp_findorf [-m value] [-M value] [-o option] [-c file] [-p type] [-q] [-v] [-d] [-h] [inputfile] [outputfile]


-m value
set the minimal considered ORF length to value bp.
-M value
set the maximal considered ORF length to value bp.
specify output type:
-o s[equences]
print the protein sequences of the ORFs.
-o p[ositions]
print the nucleotide positions of the ORFs in the sequence(s).
print the codon table and exit
-c code_file
load codon table modifications from file code_file
Prints the version information.
Prints lots of debugging information.
Shows usage information.
file to proces; if not given, will use standard input
file to write the data to; if not given, will use standard output


gp_findorf prints out all ORF it is able to retrieve from the provided sequence(s) in all six reading frames. gp_findorf always prints the longest ORF possible. ORF is defined as a nucleotide sequence starting with a start codon and ending with a stop codon; the sequences cannot be degenerated (obviously), but have to be strict DNA or RNA sequences.

See also gp_seq2prot(1) for additional details.

All Genpak programs complain in situations you would also complain, like when they cannot find a sequence you gave them or the sequence is not valid.

The Genpak programs do not write over existing files. I have found this feature very useful :-)


I'm sure there are plenty left, so please mail me if you find them. I tried to clean up every bug I could find.
