NAME

Bio::DB::MeSH - Term retrieval from a Web MeSH database

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



 my $mesh = Bio::DB::MeSH->new();
 my $term = $mesh->get_exact_term(Butter);
 print $term->description;



DESCRIPTION

This class retrieves a term from the Medical Subject Headings database by the National Library of Medicine of USA. See <http://www.nlm.nih.gov/mesh/meshhome.html>.

This class implements Bio::SimpleAnalysisI and wraps its methods under get_exact_term.

By default, web access uses WWW::Mechanize, but in its absence falls back to bioperl module Bio::WebAgent which is a subclass of LWP::UserAgent. If not even that is not installed, it uses Bio::Root::HTTPget.
