       Bio::FeatureIO::vecscreen_simple - read/write features from NCBI vecscreen -f 3 output


           # read features
           my $fin = Bio::FeatureIO->new(-file=>'vecscreen.out',
           my @vec_regions;
           while (my $f = $fin->next_feature) {
             push @vec_regions, $f;

       vecscreen is a system for quickly identifying segments of a nucleic acid sequence that may
       be of vector origin.  NCBI developed vecscreen to minimize the incidence and impact of
       vector contamination in public sequence databases.  GenBank Annotation Staff use vecscreen
       to verify that sequences submitted for inclusion in the database are free from
       contaminating vector sequence. Any sequence can be screened for vector contamination using

       This module provides parsing for vecscreen '-f 3' output, described in the vecscreen
       documentation as 'Text list, no alignments'


   Mailing Lists
       User feedback is an integral part of the evolution of this and other Bioperl modules. Send
       your comments and suggestions preferably to the Bioperl mailing list.  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
       Report bugs to the Bioperl bug tracking system to help us keep track of the bugs and their

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

       Title   : _initialize Function: Reading? parses the header of the input

         Title   : next_feature
         Usage   : $io->next_feature()
         Function: read the next feature from the vecscreen output file
         Args    : none
         Returns : Bio::SeqFeatureI object

   write_feature (NOT IMPLEMENTED)
         Title   : write_feature
         Usage   : $io->write_feature($feature)
         Function: write a Bio::SeqFeatureI object in vecscreen -f 3 format
         Example :
         Args    : Bio::SeqFeatureI object
         Returns :
