If I have a sequence contained in a FASTA file, is there a way to display the corresponding chain of amino acids? If the FASTA file contains a genome I may need to first convert to the reverse complement, is this possible as well? Thank you in advance

You can find many command line/on-line tools for this. EMBOSS transeq (WEB LINK) is one of them. There are command line versions available as well. If you have an eukaryotic sequence then it would not be a simple matter of just translating the sequence, if you expect there to be splicing.

Note: Why are you using samtools and bcftool tags here. They are not relevant for this question.

Thank you for the fast response-more than enough to get me started! Just updated the tags.
