       Bio::SeqFeature::Gene::ExonI - Interface for a feature representing an exon


       See documentation of methods.


       A feature representing an exon. An exon in this definition is transcribed and at least for
       one particular transcript not spliced out of the pre-mRNA. However, it does not
       necessarily code for amino acid.


   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.

   Reporting Bugs

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

        Title   : is_coding
        Usage   : if($exon->is_coding()) {
                          # do something
        Function: Whether or not the exon codes for amino acid.
        Returns : TRUE if the object represents a feature translated into protein,
                  and FALSE otherwise.
        Args    :

        Title   : cds()
        Usage   : $cds = $exon->cds();
        Function: Get the coding sequence of the exon as a sequence object.

                  The returned sequence object must be in frame 0, i.e., the first
                  base starts a codon.

                  An implementation may return undef, indicating that a coding
                  sequence does not exist, e.g. for a UTR (untranslated region).

        Returns : A L<Bio::PrimarySeqI> implementing object.
        Args    :
