       Wrapper for Primate,  Guy Slater's near exact match finder for short sequence tags.

SYNOPSIS

         use Bio::Tools::Run::Primate;
         use Bio::SeqIO;

         my $query = "primer.fa";
         my $target = "contig.fa";

         my @params = ("query" => $query,"target" => $target,"m"=>0);
         my $fact = Bio::Tools::Run::Primate->new(@params);

         my @feat = $fact->run;
         foreach my $feat(@feat) {
             print $feat->seqname."\t".$feat->primary_tag."\t".$feat->start.
             "\t".$feat->end."\t".$feat->strand."\t".$feat->seq->seq."\n";
         }

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:
