NAME

Term::DNAColor - Add colors to DNA and RNA sequences in terminal output

VERSION

version 0.110460

SYNOPSIS

    use Term::DNAColor;

    print colordna("ATCGGTCNNNTAGCTGAN"), "\n";

DESCRIPTION

This module provides a function, colordna, that takes a DNA sequence and wraps unambiguous nucleotides in ANSI color codes, so that you can print the sequence to a terminal and have it come out colored.

FUNCTIONS

colordna

Takes a string representing a DNA sequence and adds ANSI color codes to the following nucleotides:

  • A: green
  • T: red
  • C: blue
  • G: yellow

U is colorized like T, to accomodate RNA sequences.

In addition, the entire sequence is rendered in bold.

This function is exported by default.

colorrna

This is simply an alias for colordna. Both colordna and colorrna will highlight U for uracil. Unlike colordna, it is not exported by default, but only by request.

BUGS AND LIMITATIONS

Colors are not configurable.

Please report any bugs or feature requests to rct+perlbug@thompsonclan.org.
