NAME ^

Bio::SearchIO::infernal - SearchIO-based Infernal parser

SYNOPSIS ^

  my $parser = Bio::SearchIO->new(-format => 'infernal',
                                  -file => 'purine.inf');
  while( my $result = $parser->next_result ) {
        # general result info, such as model used, Infernal version
        while( my $hit = $result->next_hit ) {
            while( my $hsp = $hit->next_hsp ) {
                # ...
            }
        }
  }

DESCRIPTION ^

This is a SearchIO-based parser for Infernal output from the cmsearch program. It currently parses cmsearch output for Infernal versions 0.7-1.0; older versions may work but will not be supported.

As the first stable version has been released (and output has stabilized) it is highly recommended that users upgrade to using the latest Infernal release. Support for the older pre-v.1 developer releases will be dropped for future core 1.6 releases.

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.

 Function: Convenience method that takes multiple simple data elements and
           maps to appropriate parameters
 Returns : none
 Args    : Hash ref with the mapped key (in %MAPPING) and value

characters

 Title   : characters
 Usage   : $eventgenerator->characters($str)
 Function: Send a character events

 Args    : string

within_element

 Title   : within_element
 Usage   : if( $eventgenerator->within_element($element) ) {}
 Function: Test if we are within a particular element
           This is different than 'in' because within can be tested
           for a whole block.
 Returns : boolean

in_element

 Title   : in_element
 Usage   : if( $eventgenerator->in_element($element) ) {}
