Bio::SeqFeature::Gene::ExonI - Interface for a feature representing an exon
Package variables
No package variables defined.
Inherit
Bio::SeqFeatureI
Synopsis
See documentation of methods.
Description
A feature representing an exon. An exon in this definition is
transcribed and at least for one particular transcript not spliced out
of the pre-mRNA. However, it does not necessarily code for amino acid.

 Title   : is_coding
Usage : if($exon->is_coding()) {
# do something
}
Function: Whether or not the exon codes for amino acid.
Returns : TRUE if the object represents a feature translated into protein,
and FALSE otherwise.
Args :

 Title   : cds()
Usage : $cds = $exon->cds();
Function: Get the coding sequence of the exon as a sequence object.
The returned sequence object must be in frame 0, i.e., the first base starts a codon. An implementation may return undef, indicating that a coding sequence does not exist, e.g. for a UTR (untranslated region). Returns : A Bio::PrimarySeqI implementing object.

Support Top
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.
