Module Version: 1.006922   Source   Latest Release: BioPerl-1.6.924

NAME ^

Bio::AlignIO::bl2seq - bl2seq sequence input/output stream

SYNOPSIS ^

Do not use this module directly. Use it via the Bio::AlignIO class, as in:

    use Bio::AlignIO;

    $in  = Bio::AlignIO->new(-file   => "inputfilename" ,
                             -format => "bl2seq",
                             -report_type => "blastn");
    $aln = $in->next_aln();

DESCRIPTION ^

This object can create Bio::SimpleAlign sequence alignment objects (of two sequences) from bl2seq BLAST reports.

A nice feature of this module is that - in combination with Bio::Tools::Run::StandAloneBlast.pm or a remote BLAST - it can be used to align two sequences and make a Bio::SimpleAlign object from them which can then be manipulated using any Bio::SimpleAlign methods, eg:

   # Get two sequences
   $str = Bio::SeqIO->new(-file=>'t/amino.fa' , '-format' => 'Fasta', );
   my $seq3 = $str->next_seq();
   my $seq4 = $str->next_seq();

   # Run bl2seq on them
   $factory = Bio::Tools::StandAloneBlast->new('program' => 'blastp',
                                               'outfile' => 'bl2seq.out');
   my $bl2seq_report = $factory->bl2seq($seq3, $seq4);
   # Note that report is a Bio::SearchIO object

   # Use AlignIO.pm to create a SimpleAlign object from the bl2seq report
   $str = Bio::AlignIO->new(-file=> 'bl2seq.out','-format' => 'bl2seq');
   $aln = $str->next_aln();

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.

APPENDIX ^

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

new

 Title   : new
 Usage   : my $alignio = Bio::SimpleAlign->new(-format => 'bl2seq',
                                               -file   => 'filename',
                                               -report_type => 'blastx');
 Function: Get a L<Bio::SimpleAlign>
 Returns : L<Bio::SimpleAlign> object
 Args    : -report_type => report type (blastn,blastx,tblastx,tblastn,blastp)

next_aln

 Title   : next_aln
 Usage   : $aln = $stream->next_aln()
 Function: returns the next alignment in the stream.
 Returns : L<Bio::Align::AlignI> object on success,
           undef on error or end of file
 Args    : none

write_aln (NOT IMPLEMENTED)

 Title   : write_aln
 Usage   : $stream->write_aln(@aln)
 Function: writes the $aln object into the stream in bl2seq format
 Returns : 1 for success and 0 for error
 Args    : L<Bio::Align::AlignI> object

report_type

 Title   : report_type
 Usage   : $obj->report_type($newval)
 Function: Sets the report type (blastn, blastp...)
 Returns : value of report_type (a scalar)
 Args    : on set, new value (a scalar or undef, optional)
