NAME ^

Bio::SeqFeature::Computation - Computation SeqFeature

SYNOPSIS ^

   $feat = Bio::SeqFeature::Computation->new(
       -start => 10,
       -end => 100,
       -strand => -1,
       -primary => 'repeat',
       -program_name => 'GeneMark',
       -program_date => '12-5-2000',
       -program_version => 'x.y',
       -database_name => 'Arabidopsis',
       -database_date => '12-dec-2000',
       -computation_id => 2231,
       -score => { no_score => 334 }
   );

DESCRIPTION ^

Bio::SeqFeature::Computation extends the Generic seqfeature object with a set of computation related fields and a more flexible set of storing more types of score and subseqfeatures. It is compatible with the Generic SeqFeature object.

The new way of storing score values is similar to the tag structure in the Generic object. For storing sets of subseqfeatures the array containg the subseqfeatures is now a hash which contains arrays of seqfeatures Both the score and subSeqfeature methods can be called in exactly the same way, the value's will be stored as a 'default' score or subseqfeature.

Support

Please direct usage questions or support issues to the mailing list:

DEVELOPERS ^

This class has been written with an eye out of inheritance. The fields the actual object hash are:

   _gsf_sub_hash  = reference to a hash containing sets of sub arrays
   _gsf_score_hash= reference to a hash for the score values

APPENDIX ^

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

has_score
