NAME ^

Bio::SeqIO::ace - ace sequence input/output stream

SYNOPSIS ^

Do not use this module directly. Use it via the Bio::SeqIO class.

DESCRIPTION ^

This object can transform Bio::Seq objects to and from ace file format. It only parses a DNA or Peptide objects contained in the ace file, producing PrimarySeq objects from them. All other objects in the files will be ignored. It doesn't attempt to parse any annotation attatched to the containing Sequence or Protein objects, which would probably be impossible, since everyone's ACeDB schema can be different.

It won't parse ace files containing Timestamps correctly either. This can easily be added if considered necessary.

FEEDBACK ^
