       checktrans - Reports STOP codons and ORF statistics of a protein


       checktrans -sequence seqall -orfml integer [-addlast boolean] -outfile outfile
                  -outseq seqoutall -outfeat featout

       checktrans -help


       checktrans is a command line program from EMBOSS (“the European Molecular Biology Open
       Software Suite”). It is part of the "Nucleic:Gene finding,Nucleic:Translation" command


   Input section
       -sequence seqall

   Required section
       -orfml integer
           Default value: 100

   Additional section
       -addlast boolean
           An asterisk in the protein sequence indicates the position of a STOP codon. Checktrans
           assumes that all ORFs end in a STOP codon. Forcing the sequence to end with an
           asterisk, if there is not one there already, makes checktrans treat the end as a
           potential ORF. If an asterisk is added, it is not included in the reported count of
           STOPs. Default value: Y

   Output section
       -outfile outfile

       -outseq seqoutall
           Sequence file to hold output ORF sequences

       -outfeat featout
           File for output features

       checktrans is fully documented via the tfm(1) system.
