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 _

_alignment

 Title   : _alignment
 Usage   : $aln = $obj->_alignment()
 Function: Get/set an alignment object, generating one from a file if desired.
 Returns : Bio::Align::AlignI (probably a Bio::SimpleAlign)
 Args    : none to get
           OR filename & input format of the alignment file (latter defaults to
           guess) to set from file
           OR Bio::Align::AlignI to set

_write_alignment

 Title   : _write_alignment
 Usage   : $obj->_write_alignment()
 Function: Writes the alignment object returned by _alignment() out in the
           desired format to a temp file.
 Returns : filename
 Args    : string to desribe format (default 'fasta'), any other options to pass
           to AlignIO

_tree

 Title   : _tree
 Usage   : $tree = $obj->_tree()
 Function: Get/set a tree object, generating one from a file/database if desired
 Returns : Bio::Tree::TreeI
 Args    : none to get, OR to set:
           OR filename & input format of the tree file (latter defaults to
           guess) to set from file
           OR Bio::Tree::TreeI
           OR Bio::DB::Taxonomy when _alignment() has been set and where
           sequences in the alignment have ids matching species in the taxonomy
           database

_write_tree

 Title   : _write_tree
 Usage   : $obj->_write_tree()
 Function: Writes the tree object returned by _tree() out in the desired format
           to a temp file.
 Returns : filename
 Args    : string to desribe format (default 'newick')

_get_seq_names

 Title   : _get_seq_names
 Usage   : @names = $obj->_get_seq_names()
 Function: Get all the sequence names (from id()) of the sequenes in the
           alignment.  _alignment() must be set prior to calling this.
 Returns : list of strings (seq ids)
 Args    : none

_get_node_names

 Title   : _get_node_names
 Usage   : @names = $obj->_get_node_names()
 Function: Get all the node names (from id()) of the nodes in the tree.
           _tree must be set prior to calling this.
 Returns : list of strings (node ids)
 Args    : none

_check_names

 Title   : _check_names
 Usage   : if ($obj->_check_names) { ... }
 Function: Determine if all sequences in the alignment file have a corresponding
           node in the tree file. _alignment() and _tree() must be set
           prior to calling this.
 Returns : boolean (will also warn about the specific problems when returning
           false)
 Args    : none
