Consensus w/ ambiguity codes

Howdy Folks:

Is it possible to obtain a "consensus" sequence to a group of aligned
nucleic acid sequences, such that the consensus contains ambiguity codes
reflecting the pileup, rather than lower-case majority residues, or gap
characters?

I'm thinking of situations where one was designing pcr primers to a group
of related sequences.


I'm sure there's some obvious way which I'm missing.

Cheers,


Ken.
