merger joins two overlapping nucleic acid sequences into one merged sequence.
Here is a sample session with merger:
% merger Merge two overlapping nucleic acid sequences Input sequence: tembl:eclacy Second sequence: tembl:eclaca Output sequence [eclacy.fasta]: Output alignment [eclacy.out2]:
Typically, one of the sequences will need to be reverse-complemented to put it into the correct orientation to make it join. For example:
% merger file1.seq file2.seq -sreverse2 -outseq merged.seq -outfile stdout
