This is the feature data table. Its columns are:
Note that it would be desirable to normalize the reference sequence name, since there are usually many features that share the same reference feature. However, in the current schema, query performance suffers dramatically when this additional join is added.
This is the group table. There is one row for each group. Columns:
The group table serves multiple purposes. As you might expect, it is used to cluster features that logically belong together, such as the multiple exons of the same transcript. It is also used to assign a name and class to a singleton feature. Finally, the group table is used to identify the target of a similarity hit. This is consistent with the way in which the group field is used in the GFF version 2 format.
The fgroup.gid field joins with the fdata.gid field.
This table contains the feature types, one per row. Columns are:
The ftype.ftypeid field joins with the fdata.ftypeid field. Example:
This table holds the raw DNA of the reference sequences. It has three
To overcome problems loading large blobs, DNA is automatically fragmented into multiple segments when loading, and the position of each segment is stored in foffset. The fragment size is controlled by the -clump_size argument during initialization.
This table holds attributes, which are tag/value pairs stuffed into
the GFF line. The first tag/value pair is treated as the group, and
anything else is treated as an attribute (weird, huh?).
The columns of this table are:
The fdata.fid column joins with fattribute_to_feature.fid.
This table holds the normalized names of the attributes. Fields are:
In addition to implementing the abstract SQL-generating methods of Bio::DB::GFF::Adaptor::dbi, this module also implements the data loading functionality of Bio::DB::GFF.
Title : new Usage : $db = Bio::DB::GFF->new(@args) Function: create a new adaptor Returns : a Bio::DB::GFF object Args : see below Status : Public
The new constructor is identical to the dbi adaptors new() method, except that the prefix dbi:oracle is added to the database DSN identifier automatically if it is not there already.
Argument Description -------- ----------- -dsn the DBI data source, e.g. dbi:mysql:ens0040 or "ens0040" -user username for authentication -pass the password for authentication
Title : schema Usage : $schema = $db->schema Function: return the CREATE script for the schema Returns : a list of CREATE statemetns Args : none Status : protected
This method returns a list containing the various CREATE statements needed to initialize the database tables.
Title : do_initialize Usage : $success = $db->do_initialize($drop_all) Function: initialize the database Returns : a boolean indicating the success of the operation Args : a boolean indicating whether to delete existing data Status : protected
This method will load the schema into the database. If $drop_all is true, then any existing data in the tables known to the schema will be deleted.
Internally, this method calls schema() to get the schema data.
Title : drop_all Usage : $db->drop_all Function: empty the database Returns : void Args : none Status : protected
This method drops the tables known to this module. Internally it calls the abstract tables() method.
Title : setup_load Usage : $db->setup_load Function: called before load_gff_line() Returns : void Args : none Status : protected
This method performs schema-specific initialization prior to loading a set of GFF records. It prepares a set of DBI statement handlers to be used in loading the data.
Title : load_gff_line Usage : $db->load_gff_line($fields) Function: called to load one parsed line of GFF Returns : true if successfully inserted Args : hashref containing GFF fields Status : protected
This method is called once per line of the GFF and passed a series of parsed data items that are stored into the hashref $fields. The keys are:
ref reference sequence source annotation source method annotation method start annotation start stop annotation stop score annotation score (may be undef) strand annotation strand (may be undef) phase annotation phase (may be undef) group_class class of annotations group (may be undef) group_name ID of annotations group (may be undef) target_start start of target of a similarity hit target_stop stop of target of a similarity hit attributes array reference of attributes, each of which is a [tag=>value] array ref
Title : get_table_id Usage : $integer = $db->get_table_id($table,@ids) Function: get the ID of a group or type Returns : an integer ID or undef Args : none Status : private
This internal method is called by load_gff_line to look up the integer ID of an existing feature type or group. The arguments are the name of the table, and two string identifiers. For feature types, the identifiers are the method and source. For groups, the identifiers are group name and class.
This method requires that a statement handler named lookup_$table, have been created previously by setup_load(). It is here to overcome deficiencies in mysqls INSERT syntax.
Title : search_notes Usage : @search_results = $db->search_notes("full text search string",$limit) Function: Search the notes for a text string, using mysql full-text search Returns : array of results Args : full text search string, and an optional row limit Status : public
This is a mysql-specific method. Given a search string, it performs a full-text search of the notes table and returns an array of results. Each row of the returned array is a arrayref containing the following fields:
Title : make_meta_set_query Usage : $sql = $db->make_meta_set_query Function: return SQL fragment for setting a meta parameter Returns : SQL fragment Args : none Status : public
By default this does nothing; meta parameters are not stored or retrieved.
