SeqinR home pageThe seqinR package for the R environment is a library of utilities to retrieve and analyse biological sequences. It provides an interface between:
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.
seqinr is now available on R-forge: https://r-forge.r-project.org/projects/seqinr/
