class Bio::RestrictionEnzyme::SingleStrand::CutLocationsInEnzymeNotation

Stores the cut location in thier enzyme index notation

May be initialized with a series of cuts or an enzyme pattern marked with cut symbols.

Enzyme index notation

1..n, value before 1 is -1

example
-3][-1][2][4][5

Negative values are used to indicate when a cut may occur at a specified distance before the sequence begins. This would be padded with 'n' nucleotides to represent wildcards.

Notes:

Attributes

max[R]

Last cut, in enzyme-index notation

min[R]

First cut, in enzyme-index notation

Examples:

  • n^ng^arraxt^n

  • 2

  • -1, 5

  • -1, 5
Returns

nothing
