skbio.sequence.RNA.is_reverse_complement

RNA.is_reverse_complement(other)[source]

Determine if a sequence is the reverse complement of this sequence.

State: Stable as of 0.4.0.

Parameters

other (str, Sequence, or 1D np.ndarray (np.uint8 or '|S1')) – Sequence to compare to.

Returns

True if other is the reverse complement of the nucleotide sequence.

Return type

bool

Raises

TypeError – If other is a Sequence object with a different type than the nucleotide sequence.

Examples

>>> from skbio import DNA
>>> DNA('TTCATT').is_reverse_complement('AATGAA')
True
>>> DNA('TTCATT').is_reverse_complement('AATGTT')
False
>>> DNA('ACGT').is_reverse_complement('ACGT')
True
