Bio::DB::SoapEUtilities::FetchAdaptor::seq - Fetch adaptor for 'seq' efetch SOAP
Imported by Bio::DB::SoapEUtilities::FetchAdaptor as required.
Returns an iterator over Bio::Seq or Bio::Seq::RichSeq objects, depending on the
the return type of the "efetch". A standard "efetch" to a
sequence database will return a GenBank SOAP result; this will be parsed into
rich sequence objects:
my $fac = Bio::DB::SoapEUtilities->new;
my $seqio = $fac->efetch(-db => 'protein', -id => 730439)->run(-auto_adapt=>1);
my $seq = $seqio->next_seq;
$seq->species->binomial; # returns 'Bacillus caldolyticus'
An "efetch" with "-rettype =" 'fasta'> will be parsed
into Bio::Seq objects (VERY much faster):
$seqio = $fac->efetch( -rettype => 'fasta' )->run(-auto_adapt=>1);
$seq = $seqio->next_seq;
$seq->species; # undef
$seq->desc; # kitchen sink
To find out the object type returned:
$class = $seqio->obj_class;
as for all Bio::DB::SoapEUtilities::FetchAdaptor objects.

Much inspiration from Bio::SeqIO and family.

methods are usually preceded with a _
