NAME

Bio::DB::GFF::Featname -- The name of a feature

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



  use Bio::DB::GFF;

  my $db      = Bio::DB::GFF->new( -adaptor => dbi:mysql,
                                   -dsn     => dbi:mysql:elegans42);

  my $feature = Bio::DB::GFF::Featname->new(Locus => unc-19);
  my $segment = $db->segment($feature);



DESCRIPTION

Bio::DB::GFF::Featname is the name of a feature. It contains two fields: name and class. It is typically used by the Bio::DB::GFF module to denote a group, and is accepted by Bio::DB::Relsegment->new() and Bio::DB::GFF->segment() as a replacement for the -name and -class arguments.
