NAME ^

Bio::SeqIO::seqxml - SeqXML sequence input/output stream

SYNOPSIS ^

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

  use Bio::SeqIO;
  
  # read a SeqXML file
  my $seqio = Bio::SeqIO->new(-format => 'seqxml',
                              -file   => 'my_seqs.xml');

  while (my $seq_object = $seqio->next_seq) {
      print join("\t", 
                 $seq_object->display_id,
                 $seq_object->description,
                 $seq_object->seq,           
                ), "\n";
  }
  
  # write a SeqXML file
  #
  # Note that you can (optionally) specify the source
  # (usually a database) and source version.
  my $seqwriter = Bio::SeqIO->new(-format        => 'seqxml',
                                  -file          => ">outfile.xml",
                                  -source        => 'Ensembl',
                                  -sourceVersion => '56');
  $seqwriter->write_seq($seq_object);

  # once you've written all of your seqs, you may want to do
  # an explicit close to get the closing </seqXML> tag
  $seqwriter->close; 

DESCRIPTION ^

This object can transform Bio::Seq objects to and from SeqXML format. For more information on the SeqXML standard, visit http://www.seqxml.org.

In short, SeqXML is a lightweight sequence format that takes advantage of the validation capabilities of XML while not overburdening you with a strict and complicated schema.

This module is based in part (particularly the XML-parsing part) on Bio::TreeIO::phyloxml by Mira Han.

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

APPENDIX ^

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

_initialize

 Title   : _initialize
 Usage   : $self->_initialize(@args) 
 Function: constructor (for internal use only).
 
           Besides the usual SeqIO arguments (-file, -fh, etc.),
           Bio::SeqIO::seqxml accepts three arguments which are used
           when writing out a seqxml file. They are all optional.
 Returns : none
 Args    : -source         => source string (usually a database name)
           -sourceVersion  => source version. The version number of the source
           -seqXMLversion  => the version of seqXML that will be used
 Throws  : Exception if XML::LibXML::Reader or XML::Writer
           is not initialized

next_seq

 Title   : next_seq
 Usage   : $seq = $stream->next_seq()
 Function: returns the next sequence in the stream
 Returns : L<Bio::Seq> object, or nothing if no more available
 Args    : none

write_seq

 Title   : write_seq
 Usage   : $stream->write_seq(@seq)
 Function: Writes the $seq object into the stream
 Returns : 1 for success and 0 for error
 Args    : Array of 1 or more L<Bio::PrimarySeqI> objects

_initialize_seqxml_node_methods

 Title   : _initialize_seqxml_node_methods
 Usage   : $self->_initialize_xml_node_methods
 Function: sets up code ref mapping of each seqXML node type
           to a method for processing that node type 
 Returns : none
 Args    : none

schemaLocation

 Title   : schemaLocation
 Usage   : $self->schemaLocation
 Function: gets/sets the schema location in the <seqXML> header
 Returns : the schema location string
 Args    : To set the schemaLocation, call with a schemaLocation as the argument.

source

 Title   : source
 Usage   : $self->source
 Function: gets/sets the data source in the <seqXML> header
 Returns : the data source string
 Args    : To set the source, call with a source string as the argument.

sourceVersion

 Title   : sourceVersion
 Usage   : $self->sourceVersion
 Function: gets/sets the data source version in the <seqXML> header
 Returns : the data source version string
 Args    : To set the source version, call with a source version string
           as the argument.

seqXMLversion

 Title   : seqXMLversion
 Usage   : $self->seqXMLversion
 Function: gets/sets the seqXML version in the <seqXML> header
 Returns : the seqXML version string.
 Args    : To set the seqXML version, call with a seqXML version string
           as the argument.

Methods for parsing the XML document ^

processXMLNode

 Title   : processXMLNode
 Usage   : $seqio->processXMLNode
 Function: reads the XML node and processes according to the node type
 Returns : none
 Args    : none
 Throws  : Exception on unexpected XML node type, warnings on unexpected
           XML element names.

 Usage   : $seqio->processAttribute(\%hash_for_attribute);
 Function: reads the attributes of the current element into a hash
 Returns : none
 Args    : hash reference where the attributes will be stored.

parseHeader

 Title   : parseHeader
 Usage   : $self->parseHeader();
 Function: reads the opening <seqXML> block and grabs the metadata from it,
           namely the source, sourceVersion, and seqXMLversion.
 Returns : none
 Args    : none
 Throws  : Exception if it hits an <entry> tag, because that means it's
           missed the <seqXML> tag and read too far into the file.
