R/extract_ends.R

Defines functions extract_ends

#' Create Paired-End Reference Sequences from DNAStringSets
#'
#' When working with Amplicons that are too long to merge together it is sometimes desireable to concatenate
#' the forward and reverse reads together. In order to classify these sequences using Blast, you would need
#' to generate a reference database of the same "shape" as the amplicons. This function takes a \code{\link[Biostrings]{DNAStringSet}},
#' and two lengths. For amplicon-reference workflows, this can be used downstream of \code{\link{extract_amplicons}} to
#' the ends of your amplicon.
#'
#' @param dnastringset (Required).  A \code{\link[Biostrings]{DNAStringSet}} containing your target sequences.
#' @param trimf (optional). Default \code{240}. Amount to be trimmed from the forward primer match
#' @param trimr (optional). Default \code{175}. Amount to be trimmed from the reverse primer match
#' @param sep (optional).   Default \code{"N"}. A sequence used as a delimiter between the extracted sequences.
