       fuzznuc -help


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


   Input section
       -sequence seqall

       -pattern pattern
           The standard IUPAC one-letter codes for the nucleotides are used. The symbol 'n' is
           used for a position where any nucleotide is accepted. Ambiguities are indicated by
           listing the acceptable nucleotides for a given position, between square parentheses '[
           ]'. For example: [ACG] stands for A or C or G. Ambiguities are also indicated by
           listing between a pair of curly brackets '{ }' the nucleotides that are not accepted
           at a given position. For example: {AG} stands for any nucleotides except A and G. Each
           element in a pattern is separated from its neighbor by a '-'. (Optional in fuzznuc).
           Repetition of an element of the pattern can be indicated by following that element
           with a numerical value or a numerical range between parenthesis. Examples: N(3)
           corresponds to N-N-N, N(2,4) corresponds to N-N or N-N-N or N-N-N-N. When a pattern is
           restricted to either the 5' or 3' end of a sequence, that pattern either starts with a
           '<' symbol or respectively ends with a '>' symbol. A period ends the pattern.
           (Optional in fuzznuc). For example, [CG](5)TG{A}N(1,5)C
