Bio::Seq::SeqFastaSpeedFactory(3) Rapid creation of Bio::Seq objects through a factory


use Bio::Seq::SeqFastaSpeedFactory;
my $factory = Bio::Seq::SeqFastaSpeedFactory->new();
my $seq = $factory->create( -seq => 'WYRAVLC',
-id => 'name' );


This factory was designed to build Bio::Seq objects as quickly as possible, but is not as generic as Bio::Seq::SeqFactory. It can be used to create sequences from non-rich file formats. The Bio::SeqIO::fasta sequence parser uses this factory.

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


 Title   : new
 Usage   : my $obj = Bio::Seq::SeqFastaSpeedFactory->new();
 Function: Builds a new Bio::Seq::SeqFastaSpeedFactory object 
 Returns : Bio::Seq::SeqFastaSpeedFactory
 Args    : None


 Title   : create
 Usage   : my $seq = $seqbuilder->create(-seq => 'CAGT', -id => 'name');
 Function: Instantiates a new Bio::Seq object, correctly built but very
           fast, knowing stuff about Bio::PrimarySeq and Bio::Seq
 Returns : A Bio::Seq object
 Args    : Initialization parameters for the sequence object we want:
