seqcomplement

Calculate complementary strand of nucleotide sequence

Syntax

SeqC = seqcomplement(SeqNT)

Arguments

SeqNT

Nucleotide sequence specified by any of the following:

Description

SeqC = seqcomplement(SeqNT) calculates the complementary strand of a DNA or RNA nucleotide sequence. The return sequence, SeqC, is in the same format as SeqNT. For example, if SeqNT is a vector of integers, then so is SeqC.

Nucleotide in SeqNTConverts to This Nucleotide in SeqC
AT or U
CG
GC
T or UA

Examples

Return the complement of a DNA nucleotide sequence.

s = 'ATCG';
seqcomplement(s)

ans =
TAGC
