Input section

-sequence sequence

Required section

-regions range

Regions to extract. A set of regions is specified by a set of pairs of positions. The positions are integers. They are separated by any non-digit, non-alpha character. Examples of region specifications are: 24-45, 56-78 1:45, 67=99;765..888 1,5,8,10,23,45,57,99 Default value: $(sequence.begin)-$(sequence.end)

Additional section

-separate boolean

If this is set true then each specified region is written out as a separate sequence. The name of the sequence is created from the name of the original sequence with the start and end positions of the range appended with underscore characters between them, eg: XYZ region 2 to 34 is written as: XYZ_2_34 Default value: N

Output section

-outseq seqoutall
