NAME ^

Bio::CodonUsage::Table - for access to the Codon usage Database at http://www.kazusa.or.jp/codon.

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Bio::CodonUsage::Table;
  use Bio::DB::CUTG;
  use Bio::CodonUsage::IO;
  use Bio::Tools::SeqStats;

  # Get  a codon usage table from web database
  my $cdtable = Bio::DB::CUTG->new(-sp => 'Mus musculus',
                                   -gc => 1);

  # Or from local file
  my $io      = Bio::CodonUsage::IO->new(-file => "file");
  my $cdtable = $io->next_data();

  # Or create your own from a Bio::PrimarySeq compliant object,
  # $codonstats is a ref to a hash of codon name /count key-value pairs
  my $codonstats = Bio::Tools::SeqStats->count_codons($Seq_objct);

  # '-data' must be specified, '-species' and 'genetic_code' are optional
  my $CUT = Bio::CodonUsage::Table->new(-data    => $codonstats,
                                        -species => 'Hsapiens_kinase');

  print "leu frequency is ", $cdtable->aa_frequency('LEU'), "\n";
  print "freq of ATG is ", $cdtable->codon_rel_frequency('ttc'), "\n";
  print "abs freq of ATG is ", $cdtable->codon_abs_frequency('ATG'), "\n";
  print "number of ATG codons is ", $cdtable->codon_count('ATG'), "\n";
  print "GC content at position 1 is ", $cdtable->get_coding_gc('1'), "\n";
  print "total CDSs for Mus musculus  is ", $cdtable->cds_count(), "\n";

DESCRIPTION ^

This class provides methods for accessing codon usage table data.

All of the methods at present are simple look-ups of the table or are derived from simple calculations from the table. Future methods could include measuring the codon usage of a sequence , for example, or provide methods for examining codon usage in alignments.

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 _

new

 Title   : new
 Usage   : my $cut = Bio::CodonUsage::Table->new(-data => $cut_hash_ref,
                                                 -species => 'H.sapiens_kinase'
                                                 -genetic_code =>1);
 Returns : a reference to a new  Bio::CodonUsage::Table object
 Args    : none or a reference to a hash of codon counts. This constructor is
           designed to be compatible with the output of
           Bio::Tools::SeqUtils::count_codons()
           Species and genetic code parameters can be entered here or via the 
           species() and genetic_code() methods separately.

all_aa_frequencies

 Title   : all_aa_frequencies
 Usage   : my $freq = $cdtable->all_aa_frequencies();
 Returns : a reference to a hash where each key is an amino acid
           and each value is its frequency in all proteins in that
           species.
 Args    : none

codon_abs_frequency

 Title   : codon_abs_frequency
 Usage   : my $freq = $cdtable->codon_abs_frequency('CTG');
 Purpose : To return the frequency of that codon as a percentage
           of all codons in the organism. 
 Returns : a percentage frequency
 Args    : a non-ambiguous codon string

codon_rel_frequency

 Title   : codon_rel_frequency
 Usage   : my $freq = $cdtable->codon_rel_frequency('CTG');
 Purpose : To return the frequency of that codon as a percentage
           of codons coding for the same amino acid. E.g., ATG and TGG
           would return 100 as those codons are unique.
 Returns : a percentage frequency
 Args    : a non-ambiguous codon string

probable_codons

 Title    : probable_codons
 Usage    : my $prob_codons = $cd_table->probable_codons(10);
 Purpose  : to obtain a list of codons for the amino acid above a given
            threshold % relative frequency
 Returns  : A reference to a hash where keys are 1 letter amino acid  codes
            and values are references to arrays of codons whose frequency
            is above the threshold.
 Arguments: a minimum threshold frequency

most_common_codons

 Title    : most_common_codons
 Usage    : my $common_codons = $cd_table->most_common_codons();
 Purpose  : To obtain the most common codon for a given amino acid
 Returns  : A reference to a hash where keys are 1 letter amino acid codes
            and the values are the single most common codons for those amino acids
 Arguments: None

codon_count

 Title   : codon_count
 Usage   : my $count = $cdtable->codon_count('CTG');
 Purpose : To obtain the absolute number of the codons in the

          ('all').
 Returns : a number (%-age GC content) or 0 if these fields are undefined
 Args    : 1,2,3 or 'all'.

set_coding_gc

 Title   : set_coding_gc
 Usage   : my $count = $cdtable->set_coding_gc(-1=>55.78);
 Purpose : To set the percentage GC composition for the organism at
           codon positions 1,2 or 3, or an average for all coding sequence
           ('all').  
 Returns : void
 Args    : a hash where the key must be 1,2,3 or 'all' and the value the %age GC

 Usage   : my $count = $cdtable->cds_count();
 Purpose : To retrieve the total number of CDSs used to generate the Codon Table
