Bio::DB::TFBS - Access to a Transcription Factor Binding Site database
use Bio::DB::TFBS; my $db = Bio::DB::TFBS->new(-source => 'transfac'); my ($factor_id) = $db->get_factor_ids('PPAR-gamma1'); my ($matrix_id) = $db->get_matrix_ids('PPAR-gamma1'); # get a Bio::Map::TranscriptionFactor with all the positions of a given factor my $factor = $db->get_factor(-factor_id => $factor_id); # get a Bio::Map::GeneMap containing all the factors that bind near a given gene my $gene_map = $db->get_gene_map(-gene_name => 'AQP 7'); # get a PSM (Bio::Matrix::PSM) of a given matrix my $psm = $db->get_matrix(-matrix_id => $matrix_id); # get the aligned sequences (Bio::SimpleAlign) that were used to build a given # matrix my $align = $db->get_alignment(-matrix_id => $matrix_id); # get a specific instance sequence (Bio::LocatableSeq) my $seq = $db->get_seq($id);
This is a front end module for access to a Transcription Factor Binding Site database.
