BioSequenceComplement

BioSequenceComplement[bioseq]

gives the biological complement of the sequence bioseq.

Details

  • The complement of a degenerate letter, which represents one of a number of potential bases, is another degenerate letter representing all potential complement bases.

Examples

Basic Examples  (1)

Obtain the complementary sequence of a DNA sequence:

Scope  (3)

Obtain the complementary sequence of an RNA sequence:

Obtain the complementary sequence of a circular DNA sequence:

Obtain the complementary sequence of a DNA sequence:

Complements of DNA and RNA sequences also apply to sequences with degenerate letters:

Complements can be applied to extended types with the "ComplementLetterRules" property:

Properties & Relations  (2)

BioSequenceComplement is its own inverse:

The complement of a degenerate letter yields a degenerate letter covering potential complement outcomes:

Possible Issues  (1)

Complementation is not a biological operation that applies to peptide sequences:
