       transeq - Translate nucleic acid sequences

       transeq -help


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


   Input section
       -sequence seqall

   Additional section
       -frame list
           Default value: 1

       -table list

       -regions range
           Regions to translate. If this is left blank, then the complete sequence is translated.
           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 Note: you
           should not try to use this option with any other frame than the default, -frame=1

       -trim boolean
           This removes all 'X' and '*' characters from the right end of the translation. The
           trimming process starts at the end and continues until the next character is not a 'X'
           or a '*' Default value: N

       -clean boolean
           This changes all STOP codon positions from the '*' character to 'X' (an unknown
           residue). This is useful because some programs will not accept protein sequences with
           '*' characters in them. Default value: N

   Advanced section
       -alternative boolean
           The default definition of frame '-1' is the reverse-complement of the set of codons
           used in frame 1. (Frame -2 is the set of codons used by frame 2, similarly frames -3
           and 3). This is a common standard, used by the Staden package and other programs. If
           you prefer to define frame '-1' as using the set of codons starting with the last
           codon of the sequence, then set this to be true. Default value: N

   Output section
       -outseq seqoutall
