NAME ^

Bio::Tools::IUPAC - Generates unique Seq objects from an ambiguous Seq object

SYNOPSIS ^

 use Bio::Seq;
 use Bio::Tools::IUPAC;

 my $ambiseq = Bio::Seq->new(-seq => 'ARTCGUTGR', -alphabet => 'dna');
 my $stream  = Bio::Tools::IUPAC->new(-seq => $ambiseq);

 while ($uniqueseq = $stream->next_seq()) {
     # process the unique Seq object.
 }

DESCRIPTION ^

IUPAC is a tool that produces a stream of unique, "strict"-satisfying Seq objects from an ambiquous Seq object (containing non-standard characters given the meaning shown below)

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.

APPENDIX ^

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

new

 Title   : new
 Usage   : Bio::Tools::IUPAC->new( $seq)
 Function: returns a new seq stream (akin to SeqIO)
 Returns : a Bio::Tools::IUPAC stream object that will produce unique
           Seq objects on demand.
 Args    : an ambiguously coded Seq.pm object that has a specified 'alphabet'

next_seq

 Title   : next_seq
 Usage   : $iupac->next_seq()
 Function: returns the next unique Seq object
 Returns : a Seq.pm object
 Args    : none.

iupac_iup

 Title   : iupac_iup
 Usage   : my %aasymbols = $iupac->iupac_iup
 Function: Returns a hash of PROTEIN symbols -> symbol components
 Returns : Hash
 Args    : none

iupac_iub

 Title   : iupac_iub
 Usage   : my %dnasymbols = $iupac->iupac_iub
 Function: Returns a hash of DNA symbols -> symbol components
 Returns : Hash
 Args    : none

iupac_rev_iub

 Title   : iupac_rev_iub
 Usage   : my %dnasymbols = $iupac->iupac_rev_iub
 Function: Returns a hash of nucleotide combinations -> IUPAC code
           (a reverse of the iupac_iub hash).
 Returns : Hash
 Args    : none

count

 Title   : count
 Usage   : my $total = $iupac->count();
 Function: Calculates the number of unique, unambiguous sequences that
           this ambiguous sequence could generate
 Return  : int
 Args    : none
