#' Reverse complement DNA in character string format.
#'
#' This function reverse complements a DNA sequence or vector of DNA
#'   sequences that are stored as character strings.
#'
#' @param z a vector of DNA sequences in upper case character string format.
#' @return a vector of DNA sequences as upper case character strings.
#' @details This function accepts only DNA sequences in concatenated character
#'   string format, see \code{\link[ape]{complement}} in the \code{\link[ape]{ape}}
#'   package for "DNAbin" input objects, and \code{\link[seqinr]{comp}} in the
#'   \code{\link[seqinr]{seqinr}} package for when the input object is a character
#'   vector.
