DNA overhangs design for Golden Gate etc.

Project description

Golden Hinges (full documentation here) is a Python library to find sets of overhangs (also called junctions, or protrusions) for multipart DNA assembly such as Golden Gate assembly.

Given a set of constraints (GC content bounds, differences between overhangs, mandatory and forbidden overhangs) Golden Hinges enables to find:

  • Maximal sets of valid and inter-compatible overhangs.
  • Sequence decompositions (i.e. position of cuts) which produce valid and inter-compatible overhangs, for type-2S DNA assembly.
  • Sequence mutations (subject to constraints) which enable the sequence decomposition, in extreme cases where the original sequence does not allow for such decomposition.
