Bio::DB::GFF::Aggregator::transcript -- Transcript aggregator


  use Bio::DB::GFF;
  # Open the sequence database
  my $db      = Bio::DB::GFF->new( -adaptor => 'dbi:mysql',
                                   -dsn     => 'dbi:mysql:elegans42',
                                   -aggregator => ['transcript','clone'],
 Aggregator method: transcript
 Main method:       transcript
 Sub methods:       exon CDS 5'UTR 3'UTR TSS PolyA


Bio::DB::GFF::Aggregator::transcript is one of the default aggregators, and was written to be compatible with the C elegans GFF files. It aggregates raw ""exon", "CDS", "5'UTR", "3'UTR", "polyA" and "TSS" features into "transcript" features. For compatibility with the idiosyncrasies of the Sanger GFF format, it expects that the full range of the transcript is contained in a main feature of type "Transcript" (notice the capital "T").

Internally this module is very simple. To override it with one that recognizes a main feature named "gene", simply follow this template:

 my $db = Bio::DB::GFF->new(...etc...)
 my $aggregator = Bio::DB::GFF::Aggregator->new(-method => 'transcript',
                                                -main_method => 'gene',
                                                -sub_parts => ['exon','CDS']);
