Bio::SeqIO::ace - ace sequence input/output stream
Package variables
Privates (from "my" definitions)
%bio_mol_type = ( 'dna' => 'dna', 'peptide' => 'protein', )
Included modules
Do not use this module directly. Use it via the Bio::SeqIO class.
This object can transform Bio::Seq objects to and
from ace file format. It only parses a DNA or
Peptide objects contained in the ace file,
producing PrimarySeq objects from them. All
other objects in the files will be ignored. It
doesn't attempt to parse any annotation attatched
to the containing Sequence or Protein objects,
which would probably be impossible, since
everyone's ACeDB schema can be different.
It won't parse ace files containing Timestamps
correctly either. This can easily be added if
considered necessary.

Methods description
next_seqcode    nextTop
 Title   : next_seq
Usage : $seq = $stream->next_seq()
Function: returns the next sequence in the stream
Returns : Bio::Seq object
Args : NONE
 Title   : write_seq
Usage : $stream->write_seq(@seq)
Function: writes the $seq object into the stream
Returns : 1 for success and 0 for error
Args : Bio::Seq object(s)
