NAME ^

Bio::Tools::Run::EMBOSSApplication - class for EMBOSS Applications

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Bio::Factory::EMBOSS;
  # get an EMBOSS application object from the EMBOSS factory
  $factory = Bio::Factory::EMBOSS->new();
  $application = $factory->program('embossversion');
  # run the application with an optional hash containing parameters
  $result = $application->run(); # returns a string or creates a file
  print $result . "\n";

  $water = $factory->program('water');

  # here is an example of running the application
  # water can compare 1 seq against 1->many sequences
  # in a database using Smith-Waterman
  my $seq_to_test;     # this would have a seq here
  my @seqs_to_check; # this would be a list of seqs to compare 

  my $wateroutfile = 'out.water';
  $water->run({-sequencea => $seq_to_test,
               -seqall    => \@seqs_to_check,
               -gapopen   => '10.0',
               -gapextend => '0.5',
               -outfile   => $wateroutfile});
  # now you might want to get the alignment
  use Bio::AlignIO;
  my $alnin = Bio::AlignIO->new(-format => 'emboss',
                                              -file   => $wateroutfile);

  while ( my $aln = $alnin->next_aln ) {
      # process the alignment -- these will be Bio::SimpleAlign objects
  }

DESCRIPTION ^

The EMBOSSApplication class can represent EMBOSS any program. It is created by a Bio::Factory::EMBOSS object.

If you want to check command line options before sending them to the program set $prog->verbose to positive integer. The ADC description of the available command line options is then parsed in and compared to input.

See also Bio::Factory::EMBOSS and Bio::Tools::Run::EMBOSSacd.
