NAME ^

Bio::Tools::Prediction::Gene - a predicted gene structure feature

SYNOPSIS ^

  #See documentation of methods.

DESCRIPTION ^

A feature representing a predicted gene structure. This class actually inherits off Bio::SeqFeature::Gene::Transcript and therefore has all that functionality, plus a few methods supporting predicted sequence features, like a predicted CDS and a predicted translation.

Exons held by an instance of this class will usually be instances of Bio::Tools::Prediction::Exon, although they do not have to be. Refer to the documentation of the class that produced the instance.

Normally, you will not want to create an instance of this class yourself. Instead, classes representing the results of gene structure prediction programs will do that.

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 one of the Bioperl mailing lists. 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 _

predicted_cds

 Title   : predicted_cds
 Usage   : $predicted_cds_dna = $gene->predicted_cds();
           $gene->predicted_cds($predicted_cds_dna);
 Function: Get/Set the CDS (coding sequence) as predicted by a program.

           This method is independent of an attached_seq. There is no
           guarantee whatsoever that the returned CDS has anything to do
           (e.g., matches) with the sequence covered by the exons as annotated
           through this object.

 Example :
 Returns : A Bio::PrimarySeqI implementing object holding the DNA sequence
           defined as coding by a prediction of a program.
 Args    : On set, a Bio::PrimarySeqI implementing object holding the DNA 
           sequence defined as coding by a prediction of a program.

predicted_protein

 Title   : predicted_protein
 Usage   : $predicted_protein_seq = $gene->predicted_protein();
           $gene->predicted_protein($predicted_protein_seq);
 Function: Get/Set the protein translation as predicted by a program.

           This method is independent of an attached_seq. There is no
           guarantee whatsoever that the returned translation has anything to
           do with the sequence covered by the exons as annotated
           through this object, or the sequence returned by predicted_cds(),
           although it should usually be just the standard translation.

 Example :
 Returns : A Bio::PrimarySeqI implementing object holding the protein 
           translation as predicted by a program.
 Args    : On set, a Bio::PrimarySeqI implementing object holding the protein 
           translation as predicted by a program.
