Detect Programmed Ribosomal Frameshifting Events from mRNA/cDNA BLASTX Output

Bioconductor version: Release (3.18)

'FScanR' identifies Programmed Ribosomal Frameshifting (PRF) events from BLASTX homolog sequence alignment between targeted genomic/cDNA/mRNA sequences against the peptide library of the same species or a close relative. The output by BLASTX or diamond BLASTX will be used as input of 'FScanR' and should be in a tabular format with 14 columns. For BLASTX, the output parameter should be: -outfmt '6 qseqid sseqid pident length mismatch gapopen qstart qend sstart send evalue bitscore qframe sframe'. For diamond BLASTX, the output parameter should be: -outfmt 6 qseqid sseqid pident length mismatch gapopen qstart qend sstart send evalue bitscore qframe qframe.
