Nice example++. Thanks for posting the code.

The 2bit format is used by the BLAT program for aligning DNA sequences. The BLAT suite of programs contains two utilities that might be of interest:

  • faToTwoBit convert Fasta format sequence files to a dense randomly-accessable .2bit format
  • twoBitToFa convert from the .2bit format back to fasta

The twoBitToFa documentation is as follows:

twoBitToFa - Convert all or part of .2bit file to fasta usage: twoBitToFa input.2bit output.fa options: -seq=name - restrict this to just one sequence -start=X - start at given position in sequence (zero-based) -end=X - end at given position in sequence (non-inclusive)

Once the sequence is converted back to fasta format it can be easily manipulated using a variety of tools (Perl, BioPerl, sequence utility programs, etc).

So yes, a utility does exist that meets at least some of your listed requirements. OTOH, another tool in the toolbox, especially if it is pure Perl and/or a snazzy wrapper around a command-line utility, is always welcome. :-)

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
