I have a string as str='123ACTGAAC'.

I need to extract the numeric part from the alphabetic part which I
did using

To get the alphabetic part, I could do
But when I give
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
TypeError: expected a character buffer object

How do I blank out the initial numeric part so as to get just the
alphabetic part. The string is always in the same format.

Please help.
