NAME ^

Bio::LiveSeq::Mutator - Package mutating LiveSequences

SYNOPSIS ^

  # $gene is a Bio::LiveSeq::Gene object
  my $mutate = Bio::LiveSeq::Mutator->new('-gene' => $gene,
                                          '-numbering' => "coding"
                                           );
  # $mut is a Bio::LiveSeq::Mutation object
  $mutate->add_Mutation($mut);
  # $results is a Bio::Variation::SeqDiff object
  my $results=$mutate->change_gene();
  if ($results) {
      my $out = Bio::Variation::IO->new( '-format' => 'flat');
      $out->write($results);
  }

DESCRIPTION ^

This class mutates Bio::LiveSeq::Gene objects and returns a Bio::Variation::SeqDiff object. Mutations are described as Bio::LiveSeq::Mutation objects. See Bio::LiveSeq::Gene, Bio::Variation::SeqDiff, and Bio::LiveSeq::Mutation for details.

change_gene_with_alignment

 Title   : change_gene_with_alignment

 Function:

           Returns a Bio::Variation::SeqDiff object containing the
           results of the changes in the alignment. The alignment has
           to be pairwise and have one sequence named 'QUERY', the
           other one is assumed to be a part of the sequence from
           $gene.

           This method offers a shortcut to change_gene and
           automates the creation of Bio::LiveSeq::Mutation objects.
           Use it with almost identical sequnces, e.g. to locate a SNP.

 Args    : Bio::SimpleAlign object representing a short local alignment
 Returns : Bio::Variation::SeqDiff object or 0 on error

See Bio::LiveSeq::Mutation, Bio::SimpleAlign, and Bio::Variation::SeqDiff for more information.

create_mutation

 Title   : create_mutation
 Usage   : 
 Function:

           Formats sequence differences from two sequences into
           Bio::LiveSeq::Mutation objects which can be applied to a
           gene.

           To keep it generic, sequence arguments need not to be
           Bio::LocatableSeq. Coordinate change to parent sequence
           numbering needs to be done by the calling code.

           Called from change_gene_with_alignment

 Args    : Bio::PrimarySeqI inheriting object for the reference sequence
           Bio::PrimarySeqI inheriting object for the query sequence
           integer for the start position of the local sequence difference
           integer for the length of the sequence difference
 Returns : Bio::LiveSeq::Mutation object 

change_gene

 Title   : change_gene
 Usage   : my $mutate = Bio::LiveSeq::Mutator->new(-gene => $gene,
                                                   numbering => "coding"
                                                   );
           # $mut is Bio::LiveSeq::Mutation object
           $mutate->add_Mutation($mut);
           my $results=$mutate->change_gene();

 Function:

           Returns a Bio::Variation::SeqDiff object containing the
           results of the changes performed according to the
           instructions present in Mutation(s).  The -numbering
           argument decides what molecule is being changed and what
           numbering scheme being used:

            -numbering => "entry"

               determines the DNA level, using the numbering from the
               beginning of the sequence

            -numbering => "coding"

               determines the RNA level, using the numbering from the
               beginning of the 1st transcript

               Alternative transcripts can be used by specifying
               "coding 2" or "coding 3" ...

            -numbering => "gene"

               determines the DNA level, using the numbering from the
               beginning of the 1st transcript and inluding introns.
               The meaning equals 'coding' if the reference molecule
               is cDNA.

 Args    : Bio::LiveSeq::Gene object
           Bio::LiveSeq::Mutation object(s)
           string specifying a numbering scheme (defaults to 'coding')
 Returns : Bio::Variation::SeqDiff object or 0 on error

 Example :
 Returns : number of valid mutations
 Args    : LiveSeq sequence object

_set_DNAMutation

 Title   : _set_DNAMutation
 Usage   :
 Function:

           Stores DNA level mutation attributes before mutation into
           Bio::Variation::DNAMutation object.  Links it to SeqDiff
           object.

 Example :

 Function:

           Stores RNA and AA level mutation attributes before mutation

           SeqDiff object.

 Example :
 Returns :
 Args    : Bio::Variation::SeqDiff object
           Bio::Variation::DNAMutation object

See Bio::Variation::RNAChange, Bio::Variation::RNAChange, Bio::Variation::SeqDiff, and Bio::Variation::DNAMutation.

_untranslated

 Title   : _untranslated
 Usage   :
 Function:
