NAME ^

Bio::Variation::SeqDiff - Container class for mutation/variant descriptions

SYNOPSIS ^

  $seqDiff = Bio::Variation::SeqDiff->new (
                                           -id => $M20132,
                                           -alphabet => 'rna',
                                           -gene_symbol => 'AR'
                                           -chromosome => 'X',
                                           -numbering => 'coding'
                                           );
  # get a DNAMutation object somehow
  $seqDiff->add_Variant($dnamut);
  print  $seqDiff->sys_name(), "\n"; 

DESCRIPTION ^

SeqDiff stores Bio::Variation::VariantI object references and descriptive information common to all changes in a sequence. Mutations are understood to be any kind of sequence markers and are expected to occur in the same chromosome. See Bio::Variation::VariantI for details.

The methods of SeqDiff are geared towards describing mutations in human genes using gene-based coordinate system where 'A' of the initiator codon has number 1 and the one before it -1. This is according to conventions of human genetics.

There will be class Bio::Variation::Genotype to describe markers in different chromosomes and diploid genototypes.

Classes implementing Bio::Variation::VariantI interface are Bio::Variation::DNAMutation, Bio::Variation::RNAChange, and Bio::Variation::AAChange. See Bio::Variation::VariantI, Bio::Variation::DNAMutation, Bio::Variation::RNAChange, and Bio::Variation::AAChange for more information.

Variant objects can be added using two ways: an array passed to the constructor or as individual Variant objects with add_Variant method.

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.
