NAME ^

Bio::Tools::Run::Alignment::MAFFT - run the MAFFT alignment tools

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Bio::Tools::Run::Alignment::MAFFT;

DESCRIPTION ^

You can get MAFFT from http://www.biophys.kyoto-u.ac.jp/~katoh/programs/align/mafft4/. "fftnsi" is the default in this implementation.

FEEDBACK ^

Mailing Lists

User feedback is an integral part of the evolution of this and other Bioperl modules. Send your comments and suggestions preferably to one of the Bioperl mailing lists. Your participation is much appreciated.

Support

Please direct usage questions or support issues to the mailing list:

bioperl-l@bioperl.org

rather than to the module maintainer directly. Many experienced and reponsive experts will be able look at the problem and quickly address it. Please include a thorough description of the problem with code and data examples if at all possible.

APPENDIX ^

The rest of the documentation details each of the object methods. Internal methods are usually preceded with a _

program_name

 Title   : program_name
 Usage   : $factory->program_name()
 Function: holds the program name
 Returns:  string
 Args    : None

executable

 Title   : executable
 Usage   : my $exe = $blastfactory->executable('blastall');
 Function: Finds the full path to the 'codeml' executable
 Returns : string representing the full path to the exe
 Args    : [optional] name of executable to set path to 
           [optional] boolean flag whether or not warn when exe is not found

program_path

 Title   : program_path
 Usage   : my $path = $factory->program_path();
 Function: Builds path for executable 
 Returns : string representing the full path to the exe
 Args    : none

program_dir

 Title   : program_dir
 Usage   : $factory->program_dir(@params)
 Function: returns the program directory, obtained from ENV variable.
 Returns:  string
 Args    :

error_string

 Title   : error_string
 Usage   : $obj->error_string($newval)
 Function: Where the output from the last analysis run is stored.
 Returns : value of error_string
 Args    : newvalue (optional)

version

 Title   : version
 Usage   : exit if $prog->version() < 1.8
 Function: Determine the version number of the program
 Example :
 Returns : float or undef
 Args    : none

run

 Title   : run
 Usage   : my $output = $application->run(\@seqs);
 Function: Generic run of an application
 Returns : Bio::SimpleAlign object
 Args    : array ref of Bio::PrimarySeqI objects OR
           filename of sequences to run with

align

 Title   : align
 Usage   :
        $inputfilename = 't/data/cysprot.fa';
        $aln = $factory->align($inputfilename);
or
        $seq_array_ref = \@seq_array; 
        # @seq_array is an array of Seq objs
        $aln = $factory->align($seq_array_ref);
 Function: Perform a multiple sequence alignment
 Returns : Reference to a SimpleAlign object containing the
           sequence alignment.
 Args    : Name of a file containing a set of unaligned fasta sequences
           or else an array of references to Bio::Seq objects.

 Throws an exception if argument is not either a string (eg a
 filename) or a reference to an array of Bio::Seq objects.  If
 argument is string, throws exception if file corresponding to string
 name can not be found. If argument is Bio::Seq array, throws
 exception if less than two sequence objects are in array.

_run

 Title   :  _run
 Usage   :  Internal function, not to be called directly        
 Function:  makes actual system call to tcoffee program
 Example :
 Returns : nothing; tcoffee output is written to a
           temporary file OR specified output file
 Args    : Name of a file containing a set of unaligned fasta sequences
           and hash of parameters to be passed to tcoffee

_setinput

 Title   :  _setinput
 Usage   :  Internal function, not to be called directly

_setparams

 Title   :  _setparams
 Usage   :  Internal function, not to be called directly        
 Function:  Create parameter inputs for mafft program
 Example :
 Returns : parameter string to be passed to mafft program

methods

 Title   : methods
 Usage   : my @methods = $self->methods()
 Function: Get/Set Alignment methods - NOT VALIDATED
 Returns : array of strings
 Args    : arrayref of strings

Bio::Tools::Run::BaseWrapper methods ^
