NAME ^

Bio::Restriction::IO - Handler for sequence variation IO Formats

SYNOPSIS ^

    use Bio::Restriction::IO;

    $in  = Bio::Restriction::IO->new(-file => "inputfilename" ,
                                     -format => 'withrefm');
    my $res = $in->read; # a Bio::Restriction::EnzymeCollection

DESCRIPTION ^

Bio::Restriction::IO is a handler module for the formats in the Restriction IO set, e.g. Bio::Restriction::IO::xxx. It is the officially sanctioned way of getting at the format objects, which most people should use.

The structure, conventions and most of the code is inherited from Bio::SeqIO. The main difference is that instead of using methods next_seq, you drop _seq from the method name.

Also, instead of dealing only with individual Bio::Restriction::Enzyme objects, read() will slurp in all enzymes into a Bio::Restriction::EnzymeCollection object.

For more details, see documentation in Bio::SeqIO.

TO DO ^

At the moment, these can be use mainly to get a custom set if enzymes in withrefm or itype2 formats into Bio::Restriction::Enzyme or Bio::Restriction::EnzymeCollection objects. Using bairoch format is highly experimental and is not recommmended at this time.

This class inherits from Bio::SeqIO for convenience sake, though this should inherit from Bio::Root::Root. Get rid of Bio::SeqIO inheritance by copying relevant methods in.

write() methods are currently not implemented for any format except base. Using write() even with base format is not recommended as it does not support multicut/multisite enzyme output.

Should additional formats be supported (such as XML)?

Support

Please direct usage questions or support issues to the mailing list:
