|The seqinR package for the R
environment is a library of utilities
to retrieve and analyse biological sequences.
It provides an interface between
i)the R language and environment for statistical computing and graphics and
ii) the ACNUC (Gouy et al., 1985) sequence retrieval system for nucleotide and protein sequence databases such as GenBank, EMBL, SWISS-PROT.
ACNUC is very efficient in providing direct access to subsequences of biological interest (e.g. protein coding regions, tRNA or rRNA coding regions) present in GenBank and in EMBL. Thanks to a simple query language, it is then easy under R to select sequences of interest and then use all the power of the R environment to analyze them. The ACNUC databases can be locally installed but they are more conveniently accessed through a web server to take advantage of centralized daily updates.
