[Bioperl-l] Request for direction...

So... what you are saying is:

my $Seq = Bio::SeqIO->new(-file => 'myfile', -format => 'genbank');
# Seq object contains only seqfeature generic's

# Seq object now contains 'proper' genes


I don't know if that task becomes easier or more difficut when there is no
longer access to the contextual information of the file being parsed, but I
suppose there is always a way...

That still doesn't answer the question at hand w.r.t. re-using exons...  Do
you want to weigh in on that debate too?
