Bio::SeqIO::game(3) User Contributed Perl Documentation Bio::SeqIO::game(3)

Bio::SeqIO::game -- a class for parsing and writing game-XML

This module is not used directly, use SeqIO.
 use Bio::SeqIO;
 my $in = Bio::SeqIO->new ( -file    => 'file.xml', 
                            -format  =>  'game',
                            -verbose => 1 );
 my $seq = $in->next_seq;

Bio::SeqIO::game will parse game XML (version 1.2) or write game XML from a Bio::SeqI implementing object. The XML is readable by the genome annotation editor 'Apollo' ( It is not backwards compatible with the previous version of game XML. The XML format currently used by Apollo contains a single 'main' annotated sequence, so we will only get a single annotated sequence in the stream when parsing a game-XML record.

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.                  - General discussion  - About the mailing lists
