Bio::Tools::Run::Coil - wrapper for ncoils program
# Build a Coil factory my $factory = Bio::Tools::Run::Coil->new($params); # Pass the factory a Bio::Seq object # @feats is an array of Bio::SeqFeature::Generic objects my @feats = $factory->run($seq);
This module is a wrapper for the ncoils program available via http://www.russell.embl-heidelberg.de/coils/coils.tar.gz for predicting coiled coils in protein sequences.
By default it looks for an executable called ncoils and data/parameter files in the directory specified by the COILSDIR environmental variable.

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

The rest of the documentation details each of the object methods. Internal methods are usually preceded with a _
Title : program_name Usage : $factory>program_name() Function: holds the program name Returns: string Args : None
Title : program_dir Usage : $factory->program_dir(@params) Function: returns the program directory, obtained from ENV variable. Returns: string Args :
Title : new Usage : $coil->new(@params) Function: creates a new Coil factory Returns: Bio::Tools::Run::Coil Args :
