Bio::Cluster::ClusterFactory - Instantiates a new Bio::ClusterI (or derived class) through a factory
use Bio::Cluster::ClusterFactory; # if you don't provide a default type, the factory will try # some guesswork based on display_id and namespace my $factory = Bio::Cluster::ClusterFactory->new(-type => 'Bio::Cluster::UniGene'); my $clu = $factory->create_object(-description => 'NAT', -display_id => 'Hs.2');
This object will build Bio::ClusterI objects generically.
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.

The rest of the documentation details each of the object methods. Internal methods are usually preceded with a _
Title : new Usage : my $obj = Bio::Cluster::ClusterFactory->new(); Function: Builds a new Bio::Cluster::ClusterFactory object Returns : Bio::Cluster::ClusterFactory Args : -type => string, name of a ClusterI derived class. If not provided, the factory will have to guess from ID and namespace, which may or may not be successful.
Title : create_object Usage : my $seq = $factory->create_object(<named parameters>); Function: Instantiates new Bio::ClusterI (or one of its child classes) This object allows us to genericize the instantiation of cluster objects. Returns : L<Bio::ClusterI> compliant object The return type is configurable using new(-type =>"..."). Args : initialization parameters specific to the type of cluster object we want. Typically -display_id => $name -description => description of the cluster -members => arrayref, members of the cluster
Title : _guess_type Usage : Function: Guesses the right type of L<Bio::ClusterI> implementation based on initialization parameters for the prospective object. Example : Returns : the type (a string, the module name) Args : initialization parameters to be passed to the prospective cluster object
