Project description


Merge features in GFF files


pip install feature-merge


conda install feature-merge


git clone
cd feature_merge
./ install


feature_merge [-i] [-e] [-x] [-v] [-m merge|append|error|skip|replace] [-f type[,type..]].. <input1> [<input_n>..]
Accepts GFF or GTF format.
-v Print version and exit
-f Comma seperated types of features to merge. Must be terms or accessions from the SOFA sequence ontology, \"ALL\", or \"NONE\". (Can be provided more than once to specify multiple merge groups)
-i Ignore strand, merge feature regardless of strand
-x Only merge features with identical coordinates
-e Exclude component features from output
-m Merge strategy used to deal with id collisions between input files.
    merge: attributes of all features with the same primary key will be merged
    append: entry will have a unique, autoincremented primary key assigned to it (default)
    error: exception will be raised. This means you will have to edit the file yourself to fix the duplicated IDs
    skip: ignore duplicates, emitting a warning
    replace: keep last duplicate
