NAME ^

Bio::Assembly::ContigAnalysis - Perform analysis on sequence assembly contigs.

SYNOPSIS ^

    # Module loading
    use Bio::Assembly::ContigAnalysis;

    # Assembly loading methods
    my $ca = Bio::Assembly::ContigAnalysis->new( -contig=>$contigOBJ );

    my @lcq = $ca->low_consensus_quality;
    my @hqd = $ca->high_quality_discrepancies;
    my @ss  = $ca->single_strand_regions;

DESCRIPTION ^

A contig is as a set of sequences, locally aligned to each other, when the sequences in a pair may be aligned. It may also include a consensus sequence. Bio::Assembly::ContigAnalysis is a module holding a collection of methods to analyze contig objects. It was developed around the Bio::Assembly::Contig implementation of contigs and can not work with another contig interface.

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.

Object creator ^

new

 Title     : new
 Usage     : my $contig = Bio::Assembly::ContigAnalysis->new(-contig=>$contigOBJ);
 Function  : Creates a new contig analysis object
 Returns   : Bio::Assembly::ContigAnalysis
 Args      :
             -contig : a Bio::Assembly::Contig object

Analysis methods ^

high_quality_discrepancies

 Title     : high_quality_discrepancies
 Usage     : my $sfc = $ContigAnal->high_quality_discrepancies();
 Function  : 

             Locates all high quality discrepancies among aligned
             sequences and the consensus sequence.

             Note: see Bio::Assembly::Contig POD documentation,
             section "Coordinate System", for a definition of
             available types. Default coordinate system type is
             "gapped consensus", i.e. consensus sequence (with gaps)
             coordinates. If limits are not specified, the entire
             alignment is analyzed.

 Returns   : Bio::SeqFeature::Collection
 Args      : optional arguments are
             -threshold : cutoff value for low quality (minimum high quality)
                          Default: 40
             -ignore    : number of bases that will not be analysed at
                          both ends of contig aligned elements
                          Default: 5
             -start     : start of interval that will be analyzed
             -end       : start of interval that will be analyzed
             -type      : coordinate system type for interval

low_consensus_quality

 Title     : low_consensus_quality
 Usage     : my $sfc = $ContigAnal->low_consensus_quality();
 Function  : Locates all low quality regions in the consensus
 Returns   : an array of Bio::SeqFeature::Generic objects
 Args      : optional arguments are
             -threshold : cutoff value for low quality (minimum high quality)
                          Default: 25
             -start     : start of interval that will be analyzed
             -end       : start of interval that will be analyzed
             -type      : coordinate system type for interval

not_confirmed_on_both_strands

 Title     : low_quality_consensus
 Usage     : my $sfc = $ContigAnal->low_quality_consensus();
 Function  : 

             Locates all regions whose consensus bases were not
             confirmed by bases from sequences aligned in both
             orientations, i.e., in such regions, no bases in aligned
             sequences of either +1 or -1 strand agree with the
             consensus bases.

 Returns   : an array of Bio::SeqFeature::Generic objects
 Args      : optional arguments are
             -start : start of interval that will be analyzed
             -end   : start of interval that will be analyzed
             -type  : coordinate system type for interval

single_strand

 Title     : single_strand
 Usage     : my $sfc = $ContigAnal->single_strand();
 Function  : 

             Locates all regions covered by aligned sequences only in
             one of the two strands, i.e., regions for which aligned
             sequence's strand() method returns +1 or -1 for all
             sequences.

 Returns   : an array of Bio::SeqFeature::Generic objects
 Args      : optional arguments are
             -start : start of interval that will be analyzed
             -end   : start of interval that will be analyzed
             -type  : coordinate system type for interval

Internal Methods ^

_merge_overlapping_features

 Title     : _merge_overlapping_features
 Usage     : my @feat = $ContigAnal->_merge_overlapping_features(@features);
 Function  : Merge all overlapping features into features
             that hold original features as sub-features
 Returns   : array of Bio::SeqFeature::Generic objects
 Args      : array of Bio::SeqFeature::Generic objects

_complementary_features_list

 Title     : _complementary_features_list
 Usage     : @feat = $ContigAnal->_complementary_features_list($start,$end,@features);
 Function  : Build a list of features for regions
             not covered by features in @features array
 Returns   : array of Bio::SeqFeature::Generic objects
 Args      : 
             $start    : [integer] start of first output feature
             $end      : [integer] end of last output feature
             @features : array of Bio::SeqFeature::Generic objects
