NAME ^

Bio::DB::HIV - Database object interface to the Los Alamos HIV Sequence Database

SYNOPSIS ^

    $db = new Bio::DB::HIV;

    $seq = $db->get_Seq_by_id('94284');                                 # LANL sequence id
    $seq = $db->get_Seq_by_acc('EF432710');                             # GenBank accession

    $q = new Bio::DB::Query::HIVQuery( " (C D)[subtype] SI[phenotype] (symptomatic AIDS)[patient_health] " );

    $seqio = $db->get_Stream_by_query($q);
    $seq = $seqio->next_seq();
    ($seq->annotation->get_Annotations('Virus'))[0]->{subtype}          # returns 'D'
    ($seq->annotation->get_Annotations('Patient'))[0]->{patient_health} # returns 'AIDS'
    ($seq->annotation->get_Annotations('accession'))[0]->{value}        # returns 'K03454'

DESCRIPTION ^

Bio::DB::HIV, along with Bio::DB::Query::HIVQuery, provides an interface for obtaining annotated HIV and SIV sequences from the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) HIV Sequence Database ( http://www.hiv.lanl.gov/content/sequence/HIV/mainpage.html ). Unannotated sequences can be retrieved directly from the database object, using either LANL ids or GenBank accessions. Annotations are obtained via a query object, and are attached to the correct Bio::Seq objects when the query is handled by Bio::DB::HIV::get_Seq_by_query or Bio::DB::HIV::get_Stream_by_query.

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 the Bioperl mailing list. Your participation is much appreciated.

  bioperl-l@bioperl.org                  - General discussion

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.

Reporting Bugs

APPENDIX ^

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

Constructor ^

new

 Title   : new
 Usage   : my $obj = new Bio::DB::HIV();
 Function: Builds a new Bio::DB::HIV object
 Returns : an instance of Bio::DB::HIV
 Args    :

WebDBSeqI compliance ^

get_request

 Title   : get_request
 Usage   : my $url = $self->get_request
 Function: returns a HTTP::Request object
 Returns :
 Args    : %qualifiers = a hash of qualifiers with keys in
            (-ids, -format, -mode, -query)
 Note    : Several layers of requests are performed to get to the sequence;
           see Bio::DB::Query::HIVQuery.

postprocess_data

 Title   : postprocess_data
 Usage   : $self->postprocess_data ( 'type' => 'string',
                                     'location' => \$datastr);
 Function: process downloaded data before loading into a Bio::SeqIO
 Returns : void
 Args    : hash with two keys - 'type' can be 'string' or 'file'
                              - 'location' either file location or string
                                           reference containing data

WebDBSeqI overrides ^

get_seq_stream

 Title   : get_seq_stream
 Usage   : my $seqio = $self->get_seq_stream(%qualifiers)
 Function: builds a url and queries a web db
 Returns : a Bio::SeqIO stream capable of producing sequence
 Args    : %qualifiers = a hash qualifiers that the implementing class
           will process to make a url suitable for web querying
 Note    : Some tightening up of the baseclass version

get_Stream_by_acc

  Title   : get_Stream_by_acc
  Usage   : $seq = $db->get_Stream_by_acc([$acc1, $acc2]);
  Function: Gets a series of Seq objects by GenBank accession numbers
  Returns : a Bio::SeqIO stream object
  Args    : an arrayref of accession numbers for
            the desired sequence entries
  Note    : For LANL DB, alternative to LANL seqids

get_Stream_by_query

  Title   : get_Stream_by_query
  Usage   : $stream = $db->get_Stream_by_query($query);
  Function: Gets a series of Seq objects by way of a query string or oject
  Returns : a Bio::SeqIO stream object
  Args    : $query : Currently, only a Bio::DB::Query::HIVQuery object.
            It's a good idea to create the query object first and interrogate
            it for the entry count before you fetch a potentially large stream.
