BioSequenceReverseComplement

BioSequenceReverseComplement[bioseq]

biologically complements and reverses 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.
  • The reverse complement specifies the genetic sequence as read from a complement strand.

Basic Examples  (1)

Obtain the reverse complement sequences for both DNA and RNA sequences:

Generalizations & Extensions  (3)

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

Reverse complements can also be taken for circular DNA:

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

Properties & Relations  (1)

BioSequenceReverseComplement is its own inverse:

Possible Issues  (1)

Reverse complementation is not a biological operation that applies to peptide sequences:
