Hey, can anyone get the protein translation function to work? If so, what do you use as the second term for translate("ATG", ?)? I can't get mine to accept a second argument.--Zsun 17:11, 26 February 2007 (EST)

My attempt to help you may be too simplistic (so, my apologies in advance), but did you try importing the Translate module from Bio.Seq. Maybe it is too cumbersome to translate outside of Clustal, though... ChristopherNabel 5:41, 26 February 2007

-hmm , yeah I did... weird in the tutorial it only takes one argument... oh well --Zsun

I have another question: is there a way to store a parsed Genbank sequence as a fasta file? Or load it directly as a .aln file? This isn't enclosed within the biopython documentation page for dealing with alignments. ChristopherNabel 5:32, 26 February 2007 -not sure =( Guess we'll have to wait until the morning and ask Shawn :D --Zsun
