NAME ^

Bio::Tools::Run::TribeMCL

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Bio::Tools::Run::TribeMCL;
  use Bio::SearchIO;

  # 3 methods to input the blast results

  # straight forward raw blast output (NCBI or WU-BLAST)
  my @params = ('inputtype'=>'blastfile');

  # OR

  # markov program format 
  # protein_id1 protein_id2 evalue_magnitude evalue_factor
  # for example: 
  # proteins ENSP00000257547  and ENSP00000261659
  # with a blast score evalue of 1e-50
  # and proteins O42187 and ENSP00000257547
  # with a blast score evalue of 1e-119
  # entry would be 

  my @array  = [[qw(ENSP00000257547 ENSP00000261659 1 50)],
                [qw(O42187 ENSP00000257547 1 119)]];
  my @params = ('pairs'=>\@array,I=>'2.0');

  # OR

  # pass in a searchio object 
  # slowest of the 3 methods as it does more rigourous parsing
  # than required for us here

  my $sio = Bio::SearchIO->new(-format=>'blast',
                               -file=>'blast.out');
  my @params=('inputtype'=>'searchio',I=>'2.0');


  # you can specify the path to the executable manually in the following way
  my @params=('inputtype'=>'blastfile',I=>'2.0',
              'mcl'=>'/home/shawn/software/mcl-02-150/src/shmcl/mcl',
              'matrix'=>'/home/shawn/software/mcl-02-150/src/contrib/tribe/tribe-matrix');
  my $fact = Bio::Tools::Run::TribeMCL->new(@params);

  # OR

  $fact->matrix_executable('/home/shawn/software/mcl-02-150/src/contrib/tribe/tribe-matrix');
  $fact->mcl_executable('/home/shawn/software/mcl-02-150/src/shmcl/mcl');

  # to run

  my $fact = Bio::Tools::Run::TribeMCL->new(@params);

  # Run the program
  # returns an array reference to clusters where members are the ids
  # for example :2 clusters with 3 members per cluster:
  #  $fam = [ [mem1 mem2 mem3],[mem1 mem2 mem3]]

  # pass in either the blastfile path/searchio obj/the array ref to scores
  my $fam = $fact->run($sio); 

  # print out your clusters

  for (my $i = 0; $i <scalar(@{$fam}); $i++){
    print "Cluster $i \t ".scalar(@{$fam->[$i]})." members\n";
    foreach my $member (@{$fam->[$i]}){
      print "\t$member\n";
    }
  }

DESCRIPTION ^

TribeMCL is a method for clustering proteins into related groups, which are termed 'protein families'. This clustering is achieved by analysing similarity patterns between proteins in a given dataset, and using these patterns to assign proteins into related groups. In many cases, proteins in the same protein family will have similar functional properties.

TribeMCL uses a novel clustering method (Markov Clustering or MCL) which solves problems which normally hinder protein sequence clustering.

  Res. 30(7):1575-1584 (2002)

You will need tribe-matrix (the program used to generate the matrix for input into mcl) and mcl (the clustering software) available at:

  http://www.ebi.ac.uk/research/cgg/tribe/ or
  http://micans.org/mcl/.

Future Work in this module: Port the tribe-matrix program into perl so that we can enable have a SearchIO kinda module for reading and writing mcl data format

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.
