A Python library for pretty-printing DNA and protein sequences using a monospace font
monoseq is a Python library for pretty-printing sequence strings using a monospace font. It also provides a simple command line interface.
Sequences are pretty-printed in the for DNA and proteins traditional way using blocks of letters where each line is prefixed with the sequence position. User-specified regions are highlighted using different formatting styles. The output format can be HTML or plaintext with optional styling using ANSI escape codes for use in a terminal.
>>> import monoseq >>> sequence = 'MIMANQPLWLDSEVEMNHYQQSHIKSKSPYFPEDKHICWIKIFKAFGT' * 4 >>> print monoseq.pprint_sequence(sequence, mode='plaintext') 1 MIMANQPLWL DSEVEMNHYQ QSHIKSKSPY FPEDKHICWI KIFKAFGTMI MANQPLWLDS 61 EVEMNHYQQS HIKSKSPYFP EDKHICWIKI FKAFGTMIMA NQPLWLDSEV EMNHYQQSHI 121 KSKSPYFPED KHICWIKIFK AFGTMIMANQ PLWLDSEVEM NHYQQSHIKS KSPYFPEDKH 181 ICWIKIFKAF GT
