Hi Davide,

On my version of SeqFeature/Store/DBI/mysql.pm, the problem query is:

  # if no other criteria are specified, then
  # only fetch indexed (i.e. top level objects)
  @where = 'indexed=1' unless @where;

  my $from  = join ', ', at from;
  my $where = join ' AND ',map {"($_)"} @where;
  my $group = join ', ', at group;
  $group    = "GROUP BY $group" if @group;

  my $query = <<END;
SELECT f.id,f.object,f.typeid,f.seqid,f.start,f.end,f.strand
  FROM $from
  WHERE $where

  $self->_print_query($query, at args) if DEBUG || $self->debug;

  my $sth = $self->_prepare($query);
  $sth->execute(@args) or $self->throw($sth->errstr);

Which looks OK to me.  However, $from, $where and $group are set in many
places upstream, and that is where the extra comma (or missing field name)
is, I think.

I don't see how this can be a user-caused problem.  My guess is that this is
a problem in SeqFeature, rather than in GBrowse per se, so I'm going to also
add BioPerl to this thread (and maybe someone there will send it back :-).
