SYNOPSIS ^

  use Bio::Ontology::OBOEngine;

  my $parser = Bio::Ontology::OBOEngine->new
        ( -file => "gene_ontology.obo" );

 Title   : find_terms
 Usage   : ($term) = $oe->find_terms(-identifier => "SO:0000263");
 Function: Find term instances matching queries for their attributes.

           This implementation can efficiently resolve queries by
           identifier.

 Example :
 Returns : an array of zero or more Bio::Ontology::TermI objects
 Args    : Named parameters. The following parameters should be recognized
           by any implementations:

              -identifier    query by the given identifier
              -name          query by the given name

           name exactly
 Example :
 Returns : an array of zero or more Bio::Ontology::TermI objects
 Args    : a Bio::Ontology::TermI object

find_identical_terms

 Title   : find_identical_terms
 Usage   : ($term) = $oe->find_identical_terms($term0);
 Function: Find term instances where name or synonym
           matches the query exactly
 Example :
 Returns : an array of zero or more Bio::Ontology::TermI objects
 Args    : a Bio::Ontology::TermI object

find_similar_terms

 Title   : find_similar_terms
 Usage   : ($term) = $oe->find_similar_terms($term0);
 Function: Find term instances where name or synonym, or part of one,
           matches the query.
 Example :
 Returns : an array of zero or more Bio::Ontology::TermI objects
 Args    : a Bio::Ontology::TermI object

relationship_factory

 Title   : relationship_factory
 Usage   : $fact = $obj->relationship_factory()
 Function: Get/set the object factory to be used when relationship
           objects are created by the implementation on-the-fly.

 Example :
 Returns : value of relationship_factory (a Bio::Factory::ObjectFactoryI
           compliant object)
 Args    : on set, a Bio::Factory::ObjectFactoryI compliant object

term_factory

 Title   : term_factory
 Usage   : $fact = $obj->term_factory()
 Function: Get/set the object factory to be used when term objects are
           created by the implementation on-the-fly.

           Note that this ontology engine implementation does not
           create term objects on the fly, and therefore setting this
           attribute is meaningless.

 Example :
 Returns : value of term_factory (a Bio::Factory::ObjectFactoryI
           compliant object)
 Args    : on set, a Bio::Factory::ObjectFactoryI compliant object

graph

 Title   : graph()
 Usage   : $engine->graph();
 Function: Returns the Graph this engine is based on
 Returns : Graph
 Args    :
