NAME

       Bio::Tools::Run::Hmmer - Wrapper for local execution of hmmalign, hmmbuild, hmmcalibrate,
       hmmemit, hmmpfam, hmmsearch

SYNOPSIS

         # run hmmsearch (similar for hmmpfam)
         my $factory = Bio::Tools::Run::Hmmer->new(-hmm => 'model.hmm');

         # Pass the factory a Bio::Seq object or a file name, returns a Bio::SearchIO
         my $searchio = $factory->hmmsearch($seq);

         while (my $result = $searchio->next_result){
          while(my $hit = $result->next_hit){
           while (my $hsp = $hit->next_hsp){
                   print join("\t", ( $result->query_name,
                                      $hsp->query->start,
                                      $hsp->query->end,
                                      $hit->name,
                                      $hsp->hit->start,
                                      $hsp->hit->end,
                                      $hsp->score,
                                      $hsp->evalue,
                                      $hsp->seq_str,
                                      )), "\n";
           }
          }
         }

         # build a hmm using hmmbuild
         my $aio = Bio::AlignIO->new(-file => "protein.msf", -format => 'msf');
         my $aln = $aio->next_aln;
         my $factory =  Bio::Tools::Run::Hmmer->new(-hmm => 'model.hmm');
         $factory->hmmbuild($aln);

         # calibrate the hmm
         $factory->calibrate();

         # emit a sequence stream from the hmm
         my $seqio = $factory->hmmemit();

         # align sequences to the hmm
         my $alnio = $factory->hmmalign(@seqs);

DESCRIPTION

       Wrapper module for Sean Eddy's HMMER suite of program to allow running of hmmalign,
       hmmbuild, hmmcalibrate, hmmemit, hmmpfam and hmmsearch. Binaries are available at
       http://hmmer.janelia.org/

       You can pass most options understood by the command-line programs to new(), or set the
       options by calling methods with the same name as the argument. In both instances, case
       sensitivity matters.

       Additional methods are hmm() to specifiy the hmm file (needed for all HMMER programs)
       which you would normally set in the call to new().

       The HMMER programs must either be in your path, or you must set the environment variable
       HMMERDIR to point to their location.

FEEDBACK

   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.

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

       bioperl-l@bioperl.org

       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
       Report bugs to the Bioperl bug tracking system to help us keep track the bugs and their
       resolution.  Bug reports can be submitted via the web:

APPENDIX

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

   new
        Title   : new
        Usage   : $HMMER->new(@params)
        Function: Creates a new HMMER factory
        Returns : Bio::Tools::Run::HMMER
        Args    : -hmm => filename # the hmm, used by all program types; if not set
                                   # here, must be set with hmm() method prior to
                                   # running anything
                  -_READMETHOD => 'hmmer' (default) || 'hmmer_pull' # the parsing
                                                                    # module to use for
                                                                    # hmmpfam/hmmsearch

                  Any option supported by a Hmmer program, where switches are given
                  a true value, eg. -q => 1, EXCEPT for the following which are handled
                  internally/ incompatible: h verbose a compat pvm

                  WARNING: the default sequence format passed to hmmpfam is msf. If
                  you are using a different format, you need to pass it with informat.
                  e.g.
                  my $factory = Bio::Tools::Run::Hmmer->new(-hmm => 'model.hmm',
                                                            -informat => 'fasta');

                  -q is synonymous with -quiet
                  -o is synonymous with -outfile

                  # may be specified here, allowing run() to be used, or
                  # it can be omitted and the corresponding method (eg.
                  # hmmalign()) used later.
                  -program => hmmalign|hmmbuild|hmmcalibrate|hmmemit|hmmpfam|hmmsearch
