Description
Parses raw ERPIN output.
This module is not currently complete. As is, it will parse raw
ERPIN long format output and pack information into
Bio::SeqFeature::Generic objects.
Several values have also been added in the 'tag' hash. These can be
accessed using the following syntax:
  my ($entry) = $feature->get_Annotations('SecStructure');
Added tags are :
tset - training set used for the sequence
tsetdesc - training set description line
cutoff - cutoff value used
database - name of database
dbdesc - description of database
dbratios - nucleotide ratios of database (used to calculate evalue)
descline - entire description line (in case the regex used for
sequence ID doesn't adequately catch the name
accession - accession number of sequence (if present)
logodds - logodds score value
sequence - sequence from hit, separated based on training set
See t/ERPIN.t for example usage.
At some point a more complicated feature object may be used to support
this data rather than forcing most of the information into tag/value
pairs in a SeqFeature::Generic. This will hopefully allow for more
flexible analysis of data (specifically RNA secondary structural
data).

 Title   : motiftag
Usage : $obj->motiftag($newval)
Function: Get/Set the value used for 'motif_tag', which is used for setting the
primary_tag.
Default is 'misc_binding' as set by the global $MotifTag.
'misc_binding' is used here because a conserved RNA motif is capable
of binding proteins (regulatory proteins), antisense RNA (siRNA),
small molecules (riboswitches), or nothing at all (tRNA,
terminators, etc.). It is recommended that this be changed to other
tags ('misc_RNA', 'protein_binding', 'tRNA', etc.) where appropriate.
For more information, see:
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/collab/FT/index.html
Returns : value of motif_tag (a scalar)
Args : on set, new value (a scalar or undef, optional)
source_tagcodeprevnextTop
 Title   : source_tag
Usage : $obj->source_tag($newval)
Function: Get/Set the value used for the 'source_tag'.
Default is 'ERPIN' as set by the global $SrcTag
Returns : value of source_tag (a scalar)
Args : on set, new value (a scalar or undef, optional)
desc_tagcodeprevnextTop
 Title   : desc_tag
Usage : $obj->desc_tag($newval)
Function: Get/Set the value used for the query motif. This will be placed in
the tag '-display_name'. Default is 'erpin' as set by the global
$DescTag. Use this to manually set the descriptor (motif searched for).
Since there is no way for this module to tell what the motif is from the
name of the descriptor file or the ERPIN output, this should
be set every time an ERPIN object is instantiated for clarity
Returns : value of exon_tag (a scalar)
Args : on set, new value (a scalar or undef, optional)
analysis_methodcodeprevnextTop
 Usage     : $obj->analysis_method();
Purpose : Inherited method. Overridden to ensure that the name matches
/ERPIN/i.
Returns : String
Argument : n/a
next_featurecodeprevnextTop
 Title   : next_feature
Usage : while($gene = $obj->next_feature()) {
# do something
}
Function: Returns the next gene structure prediction of the ERPIN result
file. Call this method repeatedly until FALSE is returned.
The returned object is actually a SeqFeatureI implementing object.
This method is required for classes implementing the
SeqAnalysisParserI interface, and is merely an alias for
next_prediction() at present.
Returns : A Bio::Tools::Prediction::Gene object.
Args : None (at present)
next_predictioncodeprevnextTop
 Title   : next_prediction
Usage : while($gene = $obj->next_prediction()) {
# do something
}
Function: Returns the next gene structure prediction of the ERPIN result
file. Call this method repeatedly until FALSE is returned.
Returns : A Bio::Tools::Prediction::Gene object.
Args : None (at present)
