NAME ^

Bio::Tools::Est2Genome - Parse est2genome output, makes simple Bio::SeqFeature::Generic objects

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Bio::Tools::Est2Genome;

  my $featureiter = Bio::Tools::Est2Genome->new(-file => 'output.est2genome');

  # This is going to be fixed to use the SeqAnalysisI next_feature
  # Method eventually when we have the objects to put the data in
  # properly
  while( my $f = $featureiter->parse_next_gene ) {
   # process Bio::SeqFeature::Generic objects here
  }

DESCRIPTION ^

This module is a parser for est2genome [EMBOSS] alignments of est/cdna sequence to genomic DNA. This is generally accepted as the best program for predicting splice sites based on est/dnas (as far as I know).

This module currently does not try pull out the ungapped alignments (Segment) but may in the future.

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.

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.

APPENDIX ^

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

new

 Title   : new
 Usage   : my $obj = Bio::Tools::Est2Genome->new();
 Function: Builds a new Bio::Tools::Est2Genome object
 Returns : an instance of Bio::Tools::Est2Genome
 Args    : -file => 'output.est2genome' or
           -fh   => \*EST2GENOMEOUTPUT
           -genomefirst => 1  # genome was the first input (not standard)

analysis_method

 Usage     : $sim4->analysis_method();
 Purpose   : Inherited method. Overridden to ensure that the name matches
             /est2genome/i.
 Returns   : String
 Argument  : n/a

parse_next_gene

 Title   : parse_next_gene
 Usage   : @gene = $est2genome_result->parse_next_gene;
           foreach $exon (@exons) {
               # do something
           }

 Function: Parses the next alignments of the est2genome result file and
           returns the found exons as an array of
           Bio::SeqFeature::SimilarityPair objects. Call
           this method repeatedly until an empty array is returned to get the
           results for all alignments.

           The $exon->seq_id() attribute will be set to the identifier of the
           respective sequence for both sequences.
           The length is accessible via the seqlength()
           attribute of $exon->query() and
           $exon->est_hit().
 Returns : An array (or array reference) of Bio::SeqFeature::SimilarityPair and Bio::SeqFeature::Generic objects
           or Bio::SeqFeature::Gene::GeneStructure
 Args    : flag(1/0) indicating to return Bio::SeqFeature::Gene::GeneStructure or Bio::SeqFeature::SimilarityPair
           defaults to 0

next_feature

 Title   : next_feature
 Usage   : $seqfeature = $obj->next_feature();
 Function: Returns the next feature available in the analysis result, or
           undef if there are no more features.
 Example :
 Returns : A Bio::SeqFeatureI implementing object, or undef if there are no
           more features.
 Args    : none
