gmod_make_cvtermpath.pl - calculates the transitive closure on the ontology

GMOD_MAKE_CVTERMPATH(1p) User Contributed Perl Documentation GMOD_MAKE_CVTERMPATH(1p)

NAME

gmod_make_cvtermpath.pl - calculates the transitive closure on the ontology terms in the cvterm table

USAGE

 perl gmod_make_cvtermpath.pl -H [dbhost] -D [dbname]  [-vt] -c cvname
 perl gmod_make_cvtermpath.pl -g [GMODConf_profile] -c cvname

Parameters

-c
Name of ontology (cv.name) to compute the transitive closure on. (Required)
-v
Verbose output
-t
Trial mode. Do not perform any store operations at all. (Not implemented)
-o
outfile for writing errors and verbose messages (optional)
-g
GMOD database profile name (can provide host and DB name) Default: 'default'

If not using a GMOD database profile (option -g) then you must provide the following parameters

-D
Database name
-H
Hostname
-d
Database driver name (e.g. 'Pg' for postgres)
-u
[Optional- if default user is not used] Database user name
-p
[Optional- if you need a password to connect to your database] Password for your user to connect to the database

DESCRIPTION

This script calculates the transitive closure on the ontology terms in the cvterm table. As this is a computationaly intensive operation, doing so on a large cv like the Gene Ontology can take several hours. For more information on what a transative closure is, please see:
