ypkpathway 0.6.0

Assemble metabolic pathways from the command line using the ypkpathway protocol

Ypkpatwhay provides a command line application for planning DNA assembly projects using the Yeast Pathway Kit protocol.

Typical usage at the command line could look like this:

bjorn@bjorn-UL30A:/$ ypkpathway four_gene_xylose_pathway.txt

Where four_gene_xylose_pathway1.txt is a text file containing DNA sequences to be assembled in FASTA or Genbank format. See documentation for file format.

The ypkpathway creates a subdirectory called generates a sub directory called “ypk_assembly”. This subdirectory will contain a file summary of the DNA assembly project called report.html which can be opened in a web browser.

The report will include:

  • The sequence of the final pathway
  • Sequences of all generated intermediate vectors
  • All PCR primers needed for the amplification of pathway components
  • Diagnostic PCR product fragment lengths indicating correct and incorrect clonings

ypkpathway depends on the pydna package.
