Useful utilities for helping in parsing GenBank files.
Provide specialized capabilities for cleaning up values in features.
This class is designed to provide a mechanism to clean up and process values in the key/value pairs of GenBank features. This is useful because in cases like:
you’ll end up with a value with 012s and spaces in it like:
which you probably don’t want.
This cleaning needs to be done on a case by case basis since it is impossible to interpret whether you should be concatenating everything (as in translations), or combining things with spaces (as might be the case with /notes).
Initialize with the keys we should deal with.
clean_value(self, key_name, value)¶
Clean the specified value and return it.
If the value is not specified to be dealt with, the original value will be returned.
