[Bioperl-l] need subject length
Sat, 7 Apr 2001 21:23:51 -0700 (PDT)
I'm using BPlite to read blast reports. So far it's working well for me,
except for one critical feature:
I need to know what the full length of each "subject" sequence is.
For instance, if an HSP only covers part of a hit subject sequence, I need
to know how much of the subject was left out.
The old Blast object lets me get this info like so:
my $slen = $hsp->subject->length()
The equivalent call using BPLite only returns the length of the
aligned portion of the subject. What method should I call instead
to get this information using BPlite?
