restover takes a specified sequence and a short sequence of a cut-site overhang and searches the REBASE database for matching enzymes that create the desired overhang sequence when they cut the input sequence.

Here is a sample session with restover:

% restover Finds restriction enzymes that produce a specific overhang Input sequence(s): em:hsfau Overlap sequence: cg Output file [hsfau.restover]:

Mandatory qualifiers:

[-sequence] (seqall)

Sequence database USA.

[-seqcomp] (string)

Overlap sequence.

[-outfile] (outfile)

Output filename.

Advanced qualifiers:

-min (integer)

Minimum cuts per restriction enzyme.

-max (integer)

Maximum cuts per restriction enzyme.

-single (boolean)

Force single site only cuts

-threeprime (boolean)

3' overhang? (else 5') e.g., BamHI has CTAG as a 5' overhang, and ApaI has CCGG as 3' overhang.

-[no]blunt (boolean)

Allow blunt end cutters.

-[no]sticky (boolean)

Allow sticky end cutters.

-[no]ambiguity (boolean)

Allow ambiguous matches.
