NAME ^

Bio::Tools::ipcress - Parse ipcress output and make features

SYNOPSIS ^

    # A simple annotation pipeline wrapper for ipcress data
    # assuming ipcress data is already generated in file seq1.ipcress
    # and sequence data is in fasta format in file called seq1.fa

    use Bio::Tools::ipcress;
    use Bio::SeqIO;
    my $parser = Bio::Tools::ipcress->new(-file => 'seq1.ipcress');
    my $seqio = Bio::SeqIO->new(-format => 'fasta', -file => 'seq1.fa');
    my $seq = $seqio->next_seq || die("cannot get a seq object from SeqIO");

    while( my $feat = $parser->next_feature ) {
        # add ipcress annotation to a sequence
        $seq->add_SeqFeature($feat);
    }
    my $seqout = Bio::SeqIO->new(-format => 'embl');
    $seqout->write_seq($seq);

DESCRIPTION ^

This object serves as a parser for ipcress data, creating a Bio::SeqFeatureI for each ipcress hit. These can be processed or added as annotation to an existing Bio::SeqI object for the purposes of automated annotation.

This module is adapted from the Bio::Tools::EPCR module written by Jason Stajich (jason-at-bioperl.org).

Ipcress is available through Guy Slater's Exonerate package http://www.ebi.ac.uk/~guy/exonerate/

Support

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

APPENDIX ^

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

new

 Title   : new
 Usage   : my $ipcress = Bio::Tools::ipcress->new(-file => $file,
                                           -primary => $fprimary, 
                                           -source => $fsource, 
                                           -groupclass => $fgroupclass);
 Function: Initializes a new ipcress parser
 Returns : Bio::Tools::ipcress
 Args    : -fh   => filehandle
           OR
           -file => filename

           -primary => a string to be used as the common value for
                       each features '-primary' tag.  Defaults to
                       the sequence ontology term 'PCR_product'.
                       (This in turn maps to the GFF 'type'
                       tag (aka 'method')).

            -source => a string to be used as the common value for
                       each features '-source' tag.  Defaults to
                       'ipcress'. (This in turn maps to the GFF 'source'
                       tag)

             -groupclass => a string to be used as the name of the tag
                           which will hold the sts marker namefirst
                           attribute.  Defaults to 'name'.

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    

source

 Title   : source
 Usage   : $obj->source($newval)
 Function: 
 Example : 
 Returns : value of source (a scalar)
 Args    : on set, new value (a scalar or undef, optional)

primary

 Title   : primary
 Usage   : $obj->primary($newval)
 Function: 
 Example : 
 Returns : value of primary (a scalar)
 Args    : on set, new value (a scalar or undef, optional)

groupclass

 Title   : groupclass
 Usage   : $obj->groupclass($newval)
 Function: 
 Example : 
 Returns : value of groupclass (a scalar)
 Args    : on set, new value (a scalar or undef, optional)
