Design and check sets of edit metric sequence tags

specifications

edittag is an application collection for designing sets of edit metric sequence tags, checking sequence tags for conformation to the edit metric, and integrating sequence tags to platform-specific sequencing adapters and PCR primers. edittag differs from other approaches:

 * edittag generates arbitrary lengths of edit-metric sequence tags in reasonable time frames using multiprocessing
 * edittag produces edit metric sequence tag sets conform to the edit distance selected
 * edittag used primer3 to integrate sequence tags to PCR primers

We provide several large sets of edit metric sequence tags designed using edittag in the following formats:

 * text - this file is in an appropriate format for check_levenshtien_distance.py
 * csv
 * sqlite database

easy_install edittag

tar.gz

wget package.tar.gz
tar -xzf package.tar.gz
python setup.py install


repository

git clone git://github.com/baddna/edittag.git edittag

optional package (py-levenshtein)

wget http://pylevenshtein.googlecode.com/files/python-Levenshtein-0.10.1.tar.bz2
tar -xzvf python-Levenshtein-0.10.1.tar.bz2
python setup.py install


optional package (primer3)

If you wish to design primers incorporating edit metric sequence tags, you need to first install a modified version of primer3:

git clone git://github.com/baddna/mod-primer3.git
cd mod-primer3/src
make
make install


Ensure that you move the binaries from mod-primer3 to a location in your path (move at least primer3-long and primer3_config into the same directory in your path). You can then run
