NAME ^

Bio::Map::FPCMarker - An central map object representing a marker

SYNOPSIS ^

   # get the marker object of $marker from the Bio::Map::FPCMarker
   my $markerobj = $physical->get_markerobj($marker);

   # acquire all the clones that hit this marker
   foreach my $clone ($markerobj->each_cloneid()) {
       print "   +++$clone\n";
   }

   # find the position of this marker in $contig
   print "Position in contig $contig"," = ",$markerobj->position($contig),
         "\n";

   # find the group of the marker
   print "Group : ",$markerobj->group();

See Bio::Map::Position and Bio::Map::PositionI for more information.

DESCRIPTION ^

This object handles the notion of a marker. This object is intended to be used by a map parser like fpc.pm.

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 the Bioperl mailing list. 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 _

new

 Title   : new
 Usage   : my $clone = Bio::Map::FPCMarker->new
                      (
                       -name    => $marker,

               -remark => $remark
                       );

 Function: Initialize a new Bio::Map::FPCMarker object
           Most people will not use this directly but get Markers
           through L<Bio::MapIO::fpc>
 Returns : L<Bio::Map::FPCMarker> object
 Args    : -name     => marker name string,
               -type     => type string,
               -global   => global position for marker,
               -frame    => boolean if marker is framework or placement,
               -group    => group number for marker,
               -subgroup => subgroup number of marker,
               -anchor   => boolean if marker is anchored,
               -clones   => all the clone elements in map (hashref),
               -contigs  => all the contig elements (hasref),
               -position => mapping of marker names to map position (hasref),
           -remark   => remarks, separated by newlines

Access Methods ^

These methods let you get and set the member variables

name

 Title   : name
 Usage   : my $name = $markerobj->name();
 Function: Get/set the name for this marker
 Returns : scalar representing the current name of this marker
 Args    : none to get, OR string to set

type

 Title   : type
 Usage   : my $type = $markerobj->type();
 Function: Get/set the type for this marker
 Returns : scalar representing the current type of this marker
 Args    : none to get, OR string to set

global

 Title   : global
 Usage   : my $type = $markerobj->global();
 Function: Get/set the global position for this marker
 Returns : scalar representing the current global position of this marker
 Args    : none to get, OR string to set

anchor

 Title   : anchor
 Usage   : my $anchor = $markerobj->anchor();
 Function: indicate if the Marker is anchored or not (True | False)
 Returns : scalar representing the anchor (1 | 0) for this marker
 Args    : none to get, OR 1|0 to set

framework

 Title   : framework
 Usage   : $frame = $markerobj->framework();
 Function: indicate if the Marker is framework or placement (1 | 0)

group

 Title   : group
 Usage   : $grpno = $markerobj->group();

 Args    : none to get, OR string to set

subgroup

 Title   : subgroup
 Usage   : $subgroup = $marker->subgroup();     
 Function: Get/set the subgroup for this marker. This is a generic term:
           subgroup here could represent subgroup of a Chromosome or of a
           Linkage Group. The user must take care of which subgroup he/she is
           querying for.        
 Returns : scalar representing the subgroup of this marker
 Args    : none to get, OR string to set

position

 Title   : position
 Usage   : $markerpos = $markerobj->position($ctg);
 Function: get the position of the marker in the contig

           the contig
 Args    : $ctg is necessary to look for the position of the marker
           in that contig.

 *** This has nothing to do with an actual Bio::Map::PositionI object ***

remark

 Title   : remark

 Function: get the remarks for this marker
 Returns : scalar of newline-separated markers
 Args    : none

each_cloneid

 Title   : each_cloneid
 Usage   : my @clones  = $map->each_cloneid();
 Function: retrieves all the clone ids in a map unordered
 Returns : list of strings (ids)
 Args    : none

 *** This only supplies the ids set with the set_clones method ***
 *** It has nothing to do with actual Bio::Map::MappableI objects ***

each_contigid

 Title   : each_contigid
 Usage   : my @contigs = $map->each_contigid();
 Function: retrieves all the contig ids in a map unordered
 Returns : list of strings (ids)
 Args    : none

 *** This only supplies the ids set with the set_contigs method ***
 *** It has nothing to do with actual Bio::Map::MapI objects ***

set_clones

 Title   : set_clones
 Usage   : $marker->set_clones(\%clones)
 Function: Set the clone ids hashref
 Returns : None
 Args    : Hashref of clone ids

 *** This only sets a hash of ids ***
 *** It has nothing to do with actual Bio::Map::MappableI objects ***

 Usage   : $marker->set_contigs(\%contigs)
 Function: Set the contig ids hashref
 Returns : None
 Args    : Hashref of contig ids
