This tool will extract protein sequences surrounding fusion variant in an by parsing Integrate-Neo or AGFusion output. One use case for this tool is to help select long peptides that contain short neoepitope candidates. For example, if pvacfuse was run to predict nonamers (9-mers) that are good binders and the user wishes to select long peptide (e.g. 24-mer) sequences that contain the nonamer for synthesis or encoding in a DNA vector. The fusion position will be centered in the protein sequence returned (if possible). If the fusion causes a frameshift, the full downstream protein sequence will be returned unless the user specifies otherwise as described above.
