NAME

Bio::AlignIO::meme - meme sequence input/output stream

SYNOPSIS

Do not use this module directly. Use it via the Bio::AlignIO class.

  use Bio::AlignIO;
  # read in an alignment from meme
  my $in = Bio::AlignIO->new(-format => 'meme',
                             -file   => 'meme.out');
  while( my $aln = $in->next_aln ) {
     # do something with the alignment
  }

DESCRIPTION

This object transforms the "sites sorted by position p-value" sections of a meme (text) output file into a series of Bio::SimpleAlign objects. Each SimpleAlign object contains Bio::LocatableSeq objects which represent the individual aligned sites as defined by the central portion of the "site" field in the meme file. The start and end coordinates are derived from the "Start" field. See Bio::SimpleAlign and Bio::LocatableSeq for more information.

This module can only parse MEME version 3.0 and greater. Previous versions have output formats that are more difficult to parse correctly. If the meme output file is not version 3.0 or greater, we signal an error.
