Is there a way to trim the nucleotide sequence to a specific region? I know you can by base number but what if say for instance I would like to trim to just the open reading frame e.g.


and I want to trim everything before the ATG off so that it becomes;


This will be a different base position in most of the sequences so I couldn't instance trim off position 1-40. Is there a tool where you can tell it trim all sequences to the region starting with ATGGCC??

Many thanks,

The regular trimming tools won't do this exact operation, but the tool Text Manipulation > Replace Text in entire line could be used. This would be appropriate for fasta formatted data where the sequence lines are not wrapped (use FASTA Width formatter as needed), but not fastq.

Hope that helps! Jen, Galaxy team
