NAME

Bio::Graphics::Glyph::segments - The "segments" glyph

SYNOPSIS

  See L<Bio::Graphics::Panel> and L<Bio::Graphics::Glyph>.

DESCRIPTION

This glyph is used for drawing features that consist of discontinuous segments. Unlike "graded_segments" or "alignment", the segments are a uniform color and not dependent on the score of the segment.

The following options are standard among all Glyphs. See Bio::Graphics::Glyph for a full explanation.

In addition, the alignment glyph recognizes the following glyph-specific options:

  Option      Description                  Default
  ------      -----------                  -------

  -max_score  Maximum value of the         Calculated
              feature's "score" attribute

  -min_score  Minimum value of the         Calculated
              feature's "score" attribute

If max_score and min_score are not specified, then the glyph will calculate the local maximum and minimum scores at run time.
