Bio::Tools::PSort - Module implementing a method for predicting protein

Bio::Tools::PSort(3pm) User Contributed Perl Documentation Bio::Tools::PSort(3pm)

NAME

Bio::Tools::PSort - Module implementing a method for predicting protein localization sites.

SYNOPSIS

    $psort = new Bio::Tools::PSort();
    $psort->install('Motif', 'Motif', { -database => $motifdb });
    $psort->classify($seq);

DESCRIPTION

The PSort module implements a method for predicting protein localization sites as dicussed in the paper 'Expert System for Predicting the Protein Localization Sites in Gram-Negative Bacteria' by Kenta Nakai and Minoru Kanehisa.

CONSTRUCTOR

    $psort = new Bio::Tools::PSort();
Creates a new Bio::Tools::PSort object.

METHODS

    $psort->install('Motif', 'Motif', { -database => $motifdb });
The install method can be used to load a module after the PSort class has been instantiated. It accepts the name of the module to load, an alias used to refer to the module by the program, and an optional hashref of parameters that should be passed to the modules constructor. The alias allows the same module to be loaded more than once, but with different configuration options.
    $result = $psort->classify($seq);
The clasif method attempts to determine the likely protein localization for the provided sequence. A Bio::Tools::PSort::Report object is returned.
