seqrcomplement

Calculate reverse complementary strand of nucleotide sequence

Syntax

SeqRC = seqrcomplement(SeqNT)

Arguments

SeqNT

Nucleotide sequence specified by any of the following:

Description

SeqRC = seqrcomplement(SeqNT) calculates the reverse complementary strand of a DNA or RNA nucleotide sequence. The return sequence, SeqRC, reads from 3' --> 5' and is in the same format as SeqNT. For example, if SeqNT is a vector of integers, then so is SeqRC.

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

Examples

Return the reverse complement of a DNA nucleotide sequence.

s = 'ATCG'
seqrcomplement(s)

ans =
CGAT
