Bio.Emboss.Applications module

Code to interact with and run various EMBOSS programs (OBSOLETE).

These classes follow the AbstractCommandline interfaces for running programs.

We have decided to remove this module in future, and instead recommend building your command and invoking it via the subprocess module directly.

class Bio.Emboss.Applications.Primer3Commandline(cmd='eprimer3', **kwargs)

>>> cline.explainflag = True
>>> cline.osizeopt=20
>>> cline.psizeopt=200
>>> cline.outfile = "myresults.out"
>>> cline.bogusparameter = 1967  # Invalid parameter
Traceback (most recent call last):
    ...
ValueError: Option name bogusparameter was not found.
>>> print(cline)
eprimer3 -auto -outfile=myresults.out -sequence=mysequence.fas -hybridprobe=True -psizeopt=200 -osizeopt=20 -explainflag=True
