repbase.clean: Clean the initial Repbase database for BLAST

Description Usage Arguments Details Author(s) References Examples

View source: R/repbase.clean.R

Description

Clean the headers of the Repbase fasta files so that headers can be used to create a blast-able database.

Usage

1
repbase.clean(repbase.file, output.file)

Arguments

repbase.file

fasta file storing the corresponding Repbase annotation, e.g. athrep.ref.

output.file

name/path of the cleaned Repbase annotation file.

Details

The Repbase database can be downloaded after registration at http://www.girinst.org/repbase/. The corresponding files as they are however, cannot be converted into a blast-able database. Hence, a pre-filtering step is neccessary to be able to use this database with the e.g. repbase.query function.
