Is there a way to give weight arguments to each of the residues when using protein_scale in the ProteinAnalysis module of Bio.SeqUtils.ProtParam? I thought this would be done with the window and edge arguments, but from the documentation and the question How to allow "half windows" in biopython? I understand that the weights are symmetric and calculated automatically given a window size.
I'd like to understand what the idea behind this was, just to check that I understand this correctly. For example, if one calculates eg. hydrophobicity of a protein, why should it be a value per residue that depends on a particular window?
I was looking for a functionality like where the value given for each residue in the ParamData dictionary would be multiplied by a specified weight, like so:
```Y = ProteinAnalysis('MSTAEFAQLL') Y.protein_scale(Bio.SeqUtils.ProtParamData.kd,10) Y.protein_scale(Bio.SeqUtils.ProtParamData.kd,10,edge[0,0.2,0.3,0.1,0.,0.4,0.5,0.8,0.8,1.])```
Of course I can code this myself, but was wondering if that functionality already existed.
