       gt-seqmutate - Mutate the sequences of the given sequence file(s).


       gt seqmutate [option ...] [sequence_file ...]


           set the mutation rate (default: 1)

           set output width for FASTA sequence printing (0 disables formatting) (default: 0)

           redirect output to specified file (default: undefined)

           write gzip compressed output file (default: no)

           write bzip2 compressed output file (default: no)

           force writing to output file (default: no)

       For each position in the given sequences it is randomly determined with probability
       (mutation rate / 100) if the given position is mutated. If so, in 80% of the cases a
       substitution is performed, in 10% an insertion, and in 10% a deletion, respectively. For
       substitution and insertion events, the nucleotide i s generated randomly without regard to
       the original nucleotide. That is, resubstitutions are possible. This procedure equals the
       one described on page 1867 of the following paper

       T.D. Wu and C.K. Watanabe. GMAP: a genomic mapping and alignment program for mRNA and EST
       sequences. Bioinformatics, 21(9):1859-1875, 2005.
