The FIRST LINE must contain one real number which is the degree of conservation. For example, if this is 0.85, then each base will have 85% chance of being the same, while the other bases will be 5% each. The SECOND LINE must contain the number of sequences to generate. list: details of the run. sequ: the aligned sequences, for input to makebk output: messages to the user description Aran takes a sequence as a starting point and generates random sequences from it. The program simulates a very simple dirty synthesis of the sequence. The synthesis is to be mostly the bases given in the sequence. The probability of conserving each base (f) is defined in the parameter file. If a particular base is not conserved, then the other three bases are assigned probabilities of (1-f)/3. documentation delman.use.aligned.books see also alist.p author Thomas D.
