       Bio::Tools::Run::Simprot - Wrapper around the Simprot program. Wrapper for the calculation
       of a multiple sequence alignment from a phylogenetic tree


         use Bio::Tools::Run::Simprot;
         use Bio::TreeIO;

         my $treeio = Bio::TreeIO->new(
             -format => 'nh', -file => 't/data/tree.nh');

         my $tree = $treeio->next_tree;

         my $simprot = Bio::Tools::Run::Simprot->new();
         my ($rc,$aln,$seq) = $simprot->run();


       This is a wrapper around the Simprot program by Andy Pang, Andrew D Smith, Paulo AS Nuin
       and Elisabeth RM Tillier.

       Simprot allows for several models of amino acid substitution (PAM, JTT and PMB), allows
       for gamma distributed sites rates according to Yang's model, and implements a
       parameterised Qian and Goldstein distribution model for insertion and deletion.

       See for more information.

   Helping the module find your executable
       You will need to enable SIMPROTDIR to find the simprot program. This can be done in (at
       least) three ways:

         1. Make sure the simprot executable is in your path (i.e.
            'which simprot' returns a valid program
         2. define an environmental variable SIMPROTDIR which points to a
            directory containing the 'simprot' app:
          In bash
               export SIMPROTDIR=/home/progs/simprot   or
          In csh/tcsh
               setenv SIMPROTDIR /home/progs/simprot

         3. include a definition of an environmental variable SIMPROTDIR
             in every script that will
            BEGIN {$ENV{SIMPROTDIR} = '/home/progs/simprot'; }
            use Bio::Tools::Run::Simprot;


   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.
