NAME

Bio::Seq::RichSeq - Module implementing a sequence created from a rich sequence database entry

SYNOPSIS

See Bio::Seq::RichSeqI and documentation of methods.

DESCRIPTION

This module implements Bio::Seq::RichSeqI, an interface for sequences created from or created for entries from/of rich sequence databanks, like EMBL, GenBank, and SwissProt. Methods added to the Bio::SeqI interface therefore focus on databank-specific information. Note that not every rich databank format may use all of the properties provided.

APPENDIX

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

new

 Title   : new
 Usage   : $seq    = Bio::Seq::RichSeq->new( -seq => 'ATGGGGGTGGTGGTACCCT',
                                             -id  => 'human_id',
                                             -accession_number => 'AL000012',
                                            );

 Function: Returns a new seq object from
           basic constructors, being a string for the sequence
           and strings for id and accession_number
 Returns : a new Bio::Seq::RichSeq object

division

 Title   : division
 Usage   : $obj->division($newval)
 Function: 
 Returns : value of division
 Args    : newvalue (optional)

molecule

 Title   : molecule
 Usage   : $obj->molecule($newval)
 Function: 
 Returns : type of molecule (DNA, mRNA)
 Args    : newvalue (optional)

add_date

 Title   : add_date
 Usage   : $self->add_date($datestr)
 Function: adds a date
 Example :
 Returns : a date string or an array of such strings
 Args    :

get_dates

 Title   : get_dates
 Usage   :
 Function:
 Example :
 Returns : an array of date strings
 Args    :

pid

 Title   : pid
 Usage   :
 Function: Get (and set, depending on the implementation) the PID property
           for the sequence.
 Example :
 Returns : a string
 Args    :

accession

 Title   : accession
 Usage   : $obj->accession($newval)
 Function: Whilst the underlying sequence object does not 
           have an accession, so we need one here.

           In this implementation this is merely a synonym for
           accession_number().
 Example : 
 Returns : value of accession
 Args    : newvalue (optional)

add_secondary_accession

 Title   : add_secondary_accession
 Usage   : $self->add_domment($ref)
 Function: adds a secondary_accession
 Example :
 Returns : 
 Args    : a string or an array of strings

get_secondary_accessions

 Title   : get_secondary_accessions
 Usage   :
 Function:
 Example :
 Returns : An array of strings
 Args    :

seq_version

 Title   : seq_version
 Usage   : $obj->seq_version($newval)
 Function: 
 Example : 
 Returns : value of seq_version
 Args    : newvalue (optional)

keywords

 Title   : keywords
 Usage   : $obj->keywords($newval)
 Function: 
 Returns : value of keywords (a string)
 Args    : newvalue (optional) (a string)
