Reduced (redundant or simplified) Alphabets for Proteins
How to define a custom reduced alphabetThe procedure is very simple:
- one letter must be used for each group of aminoacids
p.e.: letters A,R,C,T and D for 5 groups
- aminoacid in the serie "ARNDCEQGHILKMFPSTWYV" will be substitute by letters defining the group.
p.e: from ARNDCEQGHILKMFPSTWYV to TCDCTCDTRAACDRDTDRRA
- the resulting serie of letters will be used in the form.
