Searches for patterns in nucleic acid sequences that are first translated to protein in the specified frame with a specified genetic code. fuzztran uses patterns based on the format of pattern used in the PROSITE database, with the difference that the terminating dot '.' and the hyphens, '-', between the characters are optional. Patterns can specify a search for an exact sequence or they can allow various ambiguities, matches to variable lengths of sequence and repeated subsections of the sequence.
