       oddcomp - Identify proteins with specified sequence word composition


       oddcomp -sequence seqall -infile infile -fullwindow toggle -window integer
               -ignorebz boolean -outfile outfile

       oddcomp -help


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


   Input section
       -sequence seqall

       -infile infile
           This is a file in the format of the output produced by 'compseq' that is used to set
           the minimum frequencies of words in this analysis.

   Required section
       -fullwindow toggle
           Set this option on (Y) if you want the window size to be set to the length of the
           current protein. Otherwise, leave this option unset, in which case you'll be prompted
           for a window size to use. Default value: N

       -window integer
           This is the size of window in which to count. Thus if you want to count frequencies in
           a 40 aa stretch you should enter 40 here. Default value: 30

   Advanced section
       -ignorebz boolean
           The amino acid code B represents Asparagine or Aspartic acid and the code Z represents
           Glutamine or Glutamic acid. These are not commonly used codes and you may wish not to
           count words containing them, just noting them in the count of 'Other' words. Default
           value: Y

   Output section
       -outfile outfile
           This is the results file.
