NAME ^

Bio::Phenotype::Correlate - Representation of a correlating phenotype in a given species

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Bio::Phenotype::Correlate;

  $co = Bio::Phenotype::Correlate->new( -name        => "4(Tas1r3)",
                                        -description => "mouse correlate of human phenotype MIM 605865",
                                        -species     => $mouse,
                                        -type        => "homolog",
                                        -comment     => "type=homolog is putative" );

  print $co->name();
  print $co->description();
  print $co->species()->binomial();
  print $co->type();
  print $co->comment();

  print $co->to_string();

DESCRIPTION ^

This class models correlating phenotypes. Its creation was inspired by the OMIM database where many human phenotypes have a correlating mouse phenotype. Therefore, this class is intended to be used together with a phenotype class.

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.

Reporting Bugs

Report bugs to the Bioperl bug tracking system to help us keep track the bugs and their resolution. Bug reports can be submitted via the web:
