       Bio::DB::Ace - Database object interface to ACeDB servers


           $db = Bio::DB::Ace->new( -server => '', port => '120000');

           $seq = $db->get_Seq_by_id('J00522'); # Unique ID

           # or ...

           $seq = $db->get_Seq_by_acc('J00522'); # Accession Number


       This provides a standard BioPerl database access to Ace, using Lincoln Steins excellent
       AcePerl module. You need to download and install the aceperl module from

       before this interface will work.

       This interface is designed at the moment to work through a aceclient/aceserver type


       Download the latest aceperl tar file, gunzip/untar and cd into the directory.  This is a
       standard CPAN-style directory, so if you go

         Perl Makefile.PL
         <become root>
         make install

       Then you will have installed Aceperl. Use the PREFIX mechanism to install elsewhere.


   Mailing Lists
       User feedback is an integral part of the evolution of this and other Bioperl modules. Send
       your comments and suggestions preferably
        to one of the Bioperl mailing lists.  Your participation is much appreciated.
                  - General discussion  - About the mailing lists

       Please direct usage questions or support issues to the mailing list:

       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.

       The rest of the documentation details each of the object methods. Internal methods are
       usually preceded with a _

        Title   : get_Seq_by_id
        Usage   : $seq = $db->get_Seq_by_id($uid);
        Function: Gets a Bio::Seq object by its unique identifier/name
        Returns : a Bio::Seq object
        Args    : $id : the id (as a string) of the desired sequence entry

         Title   : get_Seq_by_acc
         Usage   : $seq = $db->get_Seq_by_acc($acc);
         Function: Gets a Bio::Seq object by its accession number
         Returns : a Bio::Seq object
         Args    : $acc : the accession number of the desired sequence entry

         Title   : _aceobj
         Usage   : $ace = $db->_aceobj();
         Function: Get/Set on the acedb object
         Returns : Ace object
         Args    : New value of the ace object
