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


   Input section
       -sequence seqall

       -pattern pattern
           The standard IUPAC one-letter codes for the amino acids are used. The symbol 'x' is
           used for a position where any amino acid is accepted. Ambiguities are indicated by
           listing the acceptable amino acids for a given position, between square parentheses '[
           ]'. For example: [ALT] stands for Ala or Leu or Thr. Ambiguities are also indicated by
           listing between a pair of curly brackets '{ }' the amino acids that are not accepted
           at a gven position. For example: {AM} stands for any amino acid except Ala and Met.
           Each element in a pattern is separated from its neighbor by a '-'. (Optional in
           fuzztran) 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:
           x(3) corresponds to x-x-x, x(2,4) corresponds to x-x or x-x-x or x-x-x-x. When a
           pattern is restricted to either the N- or C-terminal of a sequence, that pattern
           either starts with a '<' symbol or respectively ends with a '>' symbol. A period ends
           the pattern. (Optional in fuzztran). For example, [DE](2)HS{P}X(2)PX(2,4)C
