NAME

Bio::Search::Result::ResultI - Abstract interface to Search Result objects

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

# Bio::Search::Result::ResultI objects cannot be instantiated since this # module defines a pure interface.

# Given an object that implements the Bio::Search::Result::ResultI interface, # you can do the following things with it:



    use Bio::SearchIO;
    my $io = Bio::SearchIO->new(-format => blast,
                                -file   => t/data/HUMBETGLOA.tblastx);
    my $result = $io->next_result;
    while( $hit = $result->next_hit()) { # enter code here for hit processing
    }

    my $id = $result->query_name();

    my $desc = $result->query_description();

    my $dbname = $result->database_name();

    my $size = $result->database_letters();

    my $num_entries = $result->database_entries();

    my $gap_ext = $result->get_parameter(gapext);

    my @params = $result->available_parameters;

    my $kappa = $result->get_statistic(kappa);

    my @statnames = $result->available_statistics;



DESCRIPTION

Bio::Search::Result::ResultI objects are data structures containing the results from the execution of a search algorithm. As such, it may contain various algorithm specific information as well as details of the execution, but will contain a few fundamental elements, including the ability to return Bio::Search::Hit::HitI objects.

FEEDBACK

    Mailing Lists

User feedback is an integral part of the evolution of this and other Bioperl modules. Send your comments and suggestions preferably
to one of the Bioperl mailing lists. Your participation is much appreciated.

    Support

Please direct usage questions or support issues to the mailing list:

bioperl-l@bioperl.org

rather than to the module maintainer directly. Many experienced and reponsive experts will be able look at the problem and quickly address it. Please include a thorough description of the problem with code and data examples if at all possible.

APPENDIX

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

    next_hit



 Title   : next_hit
 Usage   : while( $hit = $result->next_hit()) { ... }
 Function: Returns the next available Hit object, representing potential
           matches between the query and various entities from the database.
 Returns : a Bio::Search::Hit::HitI object or undef if there are no more.
 Args    : none



    sort_hits



 Title          : sort_hits
 Usage          : $result->sort_hits(\&sort_function)
 Function       : Sorts the available hit objects by a user-supplied function. Defaults to sort
                  by descending score.
 Returns        : n/a
 Args           : A coderef for the sort function.  See the documentation on the Perl sort()
                  function for guidelines on writing sort functions. 
 Note           : To access the special variables $a and $b used by the Perl sort() function
                  the user function must access Bio::Search::Result::ResultI namespace.
                  For example, use :
                  $result->sort_hits( sub{$Bio::Search::Result::ResultI::a->length <=>
                                              $Bio::Search::Result::ResultI::b->length});

 Args    : none



    query_length



 Title   : query_length
 Usage   : $id = $result->query_length();
 Function: Get the length of the query sequence
           used in the search.

 Args    : none



    query_description



 Title   : query_description
 Usage   : $id = $result->query_description();
 Function: Get the description of the query sequence
           used in the search.
 Returns : a string
 Args    : none



    database_name



 Title   : database_name
 Usage   : $name = $result->database_name()
 Function: Used to obtain the name of the database that the query was searched
           against by the algorithm.
 Returns : a scalar string
 Args    : none



    database_letters



 Title   : database_letters
 Usage   : $size = $result->database_letters()
 Function: Used to obtain the size of database that was searched against.
 Returns : a scalar integer (units specific to algorithm, but probably the
           total number of residues in the database, if available) or undef if
           the information was not available to the Processor object.
 Args    : none



    database_entries

    algorithm_reference



 Title   : algorithm_reference
 Usage   : $obj->algorithm_reference($newval)
 Function:
 Returns : value of the literature reference for the algorithm
 Args    : newvalue (optional)
 Comments: The default implementation in ResultI returns an empty string
           rather than throwing a NotImplemented exception, since
           the ref may not always be available and is not critical.



    rid



 Title   : rid
 Usage   : $obj->rid($newval)
 Function:
 Returns : value of the BLAST Request ID (eg. RID: ZABJ4EA7014)
 Args    : newvalue (optional)
 Comments: The default implementation in ResultI returns an empty string
           rather than throwing a NotImplemented exception, since
           the RID may not always be available and is not critical.
           See: (1) http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/Class/MLACourse/Modules/BLAST/rid.html
                (2) http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/staff/tao/URLAPI/new/node63.html

    no_hits_found



 Usage     : $nohits = $blast->no_hits_found();
 Purpose   : Get boolean indicator indicating whether or not any hits
             were present in the report.

             This is NOT the same as determining the number of hits via
             the hits() method, which will return zero hits if there were no
             hits in the report or if all hits were filtered out during the parse.

             Thus, this method can be used to distinguish these possibilities
             for hitless reports generated when filtering.

 Returns   : Boolean
 Argument  : none



    set_no_hits_found



 Usage     : $blast->set_no_hits_found();
 Purpose   : Set boolean indicator indicating whether or not any hits
             were present in the report.
 Returns   : n/a
 Argument  : none
