Hello all,

Is there any tool which, given a multiFASTA file and for each sequence, shuffles middle part of the sequence leaving the flanks (user specifies them) intact and the opposite?

Thanks, Dimitris

Shuffling means randomly permute nucleotides? How are the flanks determined? By size or by length?

This sounds like something that needs a specific script, not common enough for an existing tool, although I might be wrong since the plethora of existing tools is enormous. The solution would be quite easy to script in python (and other languages but I'm a python-guy so I'll say python). Are you familiar with programming?

What would bethe difference between size and length in this context? I know R but thought that there might exist already a function within a package that could do it

I meant by sequence or by length, but size was a typo.
