NAME ^

Bio::ORA - Olfactory Receptor family Assigner (bioperl module)

SYNOPSIS ^

Take a sequence object from, say, an inputstream, and find an Olfactory Receptor gene. HMM profiles are used in order to identify location, frame and orientation of such gene.

Creating the ORA object, eg:

  my $inputstream = Bio::SeqIO->new( -file => 'seqfile', -format => 'fasta' );
  my $seqobj = $inputstream->next_seq();
  my $ORA_obj = Bio::ORA->new( $seqobj );

Obtain an array holding the start point, the stop point, the DNA sequence and amino-acid sequence, eg:

  my $array_ref = $ORA_obj->{'_result'} if ( $ORA_obj->find() );

Display result in genbank format, eg:

  $ORA_obj->show( 'genbank' );

DESCRIPTION ^

Bio::ORA is a featherweight object for identifying mammalian olfactory receptor genes. The sequences should not be longer than 20kb. The returned array include location, sequence and statistic for the putative olfactory receptor gene. Fully functional with DNA and EST sequence, no intron supported.

See Synopsis above for the object creation code.

DRIVER SCRIPT ^

  #!/usr/bin/perl
  use strict;
  use warnings;
  use Bio::Seq;
  use Bio::ORA;

  my $inseq = Bio::SeqIO->new( '-file' => '<' . $ARGV[0], -format => 'fasta' );
  while (my $seq = $inseq->next_seq) {
    my $ORA_obj = Bio::ORA->new( $seq );
    if ( $ORA_obj->find() ) {
      $ORA_obj->show( 'genbank' );
    } else {
      print "  no hit!\n";
    }
  }

REQUIREMENTS ^

To use this module you may need: * Bioperl (http://www.bioperl.org/) modules, * HMMER v3 distribution (http://hmmer.janelia.org/) and * FASTA r56 distribution (ftp://ftp.ebi.ac.uk/pub/software/unix/fasta/).

FEEDBACK ^

User feedback is an integral part of the evolution of this modules. Send your comments and suggestions preferably to author.

APPENDIX ^

The rest of the documentation details each of the object methods. Internal methods are usually preceded with a _

_findexec

 Title   : _findexec
 Usage   : my $path = $self->_findexec( $exec );
 Function: Find an executable file in the $PATH.
 Returns : The full path to the executable.
 Args    : $exec (mandatory) executable to be find.

new

 Title   : new
 Usage   : my $nb = Bio::ORA->new( $seqobj, $table, $aug, $hmm );
 Function: Initialize ORA object.
 Returns : An ORA object.
 Args    : $seqobj (mandatory) PrimarySeqI object (dna or rna),
           $table (optional) translation table/genetic code number,
              the default value is 1,
           $aug (optional) use other start codon than AUG (default 0),
           $hmm (optional) path to hmm profiles by default ORA looks at
             ./oaz.hmm.

find

 Title   : find
 Usage   : my $bool = $ORI_obj->find( $evalue, $strand, $start, $end );
 Function: Identify an olfactory receptor protein.
 Returns : boolean.
 Args    : $evalue (optional) set the E-value (expected) threshold.
             Default is 1e-30,
           $strand(optional) strand where search should be done (1 direct,
             -1 reverse or 0 both). Default is 0,
           $start (optional) coordinate of the first nucleotide. Useful
             for coordinate calculation when first is not 1. Default is 1,
           $end (optional) coordinate of the last nucleotide. Default is
             the sequence length.

_what_or

 Title   : _what_or
 Usage   : my $bool = $self->_what_oaz( $strand );
 Function: Use HMM profiles to identify an olfactory receptor gene.
 Returns : boolean.
 Args    : $strand (optional) strand where search should be done
           (1 direct, -1 reverse or 0 both). Default is 0.

_find_orf

 Title   : _find_orf
 Usage   : my $bool = $self->_find_or( $strand, $start, $end );
 Function: Retrieve the olfactory receptor ORF.
 Returns : boolean.
 Args    : $strand (mandatory) strand where ORA have been found
           (1 direct or -1 reverse),
           $start (mandatory) coordinate of the first nucleotide,
           $end (mandatory) coordinate of the last nucleotide.

getHits

 Title   : getHits
 Usage   : my @hits = Bio::ORA->getHits( $seq, $evalue, $ref );
 Function: Quick localization of ORs (use FASTA).
 Returns : Array of hits start/stop positions.

           $evalue (mandatory) det the E-value threshold,
           $ref (optional) path to fasta reference file, by default ORA
             look at ./or.fasta.
