6ft - 6-frame translation of a DNA sequence into protein
6ft [ -rs ] seq-library-file
6ft translates all six reading frames of a double-stranded DNA sequence into individual protein sequences. Stop codons are represented by character "O". seq-library-file contains one or several sequences in Pearson/Fasta format.
This program may be used for searching genomic or EST sequence databases with a protein profile. Better results are usually obtained by first converting the protein profile into a frame-search profile, and then searching a 2-frame translation of the DNA sequence database generated with pftools program 2ft, see manual pages of pftool programs ptof and 2ft.
|-r||Translate only reversed (antisense) strand.|
|-s||Translate only sense strand.|
