Bio::SeqIO::gbxml - GenBank sequence input/output stream using SAX


It is probably best not to use this object directly, but rather go through the SeqIO handler system. To read a GenBank XML file:

   $stream = Bio::SeqIO->new( -file => $filename, -format => 'gbxml');

   while ( my $bioSeqObj = $stream->next_seq() ) {
        # do something with $bioSeqObj

To write a Seq object to the current file handle in GenBank XML format:

   $stream->write_seq( -seq => $seqObj);

If instead you would like a XML::DOM object containing the GBXML, use:

   my $newXmlObject = $stream->to_bsml( -seq => $seqObj);


In addition to parts of the Bio:: hierarchy, this module uses:



This object can transform Bio::Seq objects to and from GenBank XML flatfiles.
