DESCRIPTION

       sixpack is a command line program from EMBOSS (“the European Molecular Biology Open
       Software Suite”). It is part of the "Nucleic:Gene finding,Nucleic:Translation,Display"
       command group(s).

OPTIONS

   Input section
       -sequence sequence

   Additional section
       -table list
           Genetics code used for the translation

       -firstorf boolean
           Count the beginning of a sequence as a possible ORF, even if it's inferior to the
           minimal ORF size. Default value: Y

       -lastorf boolean
           Count the end of a sequence as a possible ORF, even if it's not finishing with a STOP,
           or inferior to the minimal ORF size. Default value: Y

       -mstart boolean
           Displays only ORFs starting with an M. Default value: N

   Output section
       -outfile outfile

       -outseq seqoutall
           ORF sequence output

       -reverse boolean
           Display also the translation of the DNA sequence in the 3 reverse frames Default
           value: Y

       -orfminsize integer
           Minimum size of Open Reading Frames (ORFs) to display in the translations. Default
           value: 1

       -uppercase range
           Regions to put in uppercase. If this is left blank, then the sequence case is left
           alone. A set of regions is specified by a set of pairs of positions. The positions are
           integers. They are separated by any non-digit, non-alpha character. Examples of region
           specifications are: 24-45, 56-78 1:45, 67=99;765..888 1,5,8,10,23,45,57,99

       -highlight range
           Regions to colour if formatting for HTML. If this is left blank, then the sequence is
           left alone. A set of regions is specified by a set of pairs of positions. The
           positions are integers. They are followed by any valid HTML font colour. Examples of
           region specifications are: 24-45 blue 56-78 orange 1-100 green 120-156 red A file of
           ranges to colour (one range per line) can be specified as '@filename'.

       -number boolean
           Number the sequence at the beginning and the end of each line. Default value: Y

       -width integer
           Number of nucleotides displayed on each line Default value: 60

       -length integer

       -margin integer
           Default value: 10

       -name boolean
           Set this to be false if you do not wish to display the ID name of the sequence.
           Default value: Y

       -description boolean
           Set this to be false if you do not wish to display the description of the sequence.
           Default value: Y

       -offset integer
           Number from which you want the DNA sequence to be numbered. Default value: 1

       -html boolean
           Default value: N
