CorrectGapsAndNs: Function to correct an alignment with gaps and Ns

Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) References See Also Examples

Description

Corrects positions in a DNAStringSet or AAStringSet of aligned haplotypes, replacing gaps and Ns (indeterminates) with the nucleotide or amino acid from the corresponding position in the reference sequence.

Usage

1
CorrectGapsAndNs(hseqs, ref.seq)

Arguments

hseqs

DNAStringSet or AAStringSet object with the alignment to correct.

ref.seq

Character vector with the reference sequence of the alignment.

Value

DNAStringSet or AAStringSet object with the sequences corrected. Duplicate haplotypes may arise as a consequence of this operation. See Recollapse.
