Description

NOTE: this code is under development and not fully functional nor tested
yet.  Use only for development.
This object represents a mapped slice, i.e. a slice that's attached
to a reference slice and a mapper to convert coordinates to/from the
reference. The attachment is done via a MappedSliceContainer which
has the reference slice and the "container slice" defining the common
coordinate system for all MappedSlices.
A MappedSlice is supposed to behave as close to a Bio::EnsEMBL::Slice
as possible. Most Slice methods are implemented in MappedSlice and will
return an equivalent value to what Slice does. There are some exceptions
of unimplemented methods, either because there is no useful equivalent
for a MappedSlice to do, or they are too complicated.
Not supported Bio::EnsEMBL::Slice methods:
  All deprecated methods
  All Bio::PrimarySeqI compliance methods
  expand
  get_generic_features
  get_seq_region_id
  seq_region_Slice
Not currently supported but maybe should/could:
  calculate_pi
  calculate_theta
  get_base_count
  get_by_Individual
  get_by_strain
  invert
Internally, a MappedSlice is a collection of Bio::EnsEMBL::Slices and
associated Bio::EnsEMBL::Mappers which map the slices to the common
container coordinate system.
MappedSlices are usually created and attached to a MappedSliceContainer
by an adaptor/factory.

Method Documentation

public Adaptor Bio::EnsEMBL::MappedSlice::adaptor ( )
  Arg[1]      : (optional) Adaptor $adaptor - the adaptor/factory for this
                object
  Example     : $mapped_slice->adaptor($assembly_slice_adaptor);
  Description : Getter/setter for the adaptor/factory for this object.
  Return type : Adaptor of appropriate type
  Exceptions  : none
  Caller      : general
  Status      : At Risk
              : under development

public Listref Bio::EnsEMBL::MappedSlice::add_Slice_Mapper_pair ( )
  Arg[1]      : Bio::EnsEMBL::Slice $slice - slice to add
  Arg[2]      : Bio::EnsEMBL::Mapper $mapper - the mapper for this slice
  Example     : $mapped_slice->add_Slice_Mapper_pair($slice, $mapper);
  Description : Adds a native slice and a corresponding mapper to map to/from
                the artificial container coord system.
  Return type : listref of Bio::EnsEMBL::MappedSlice
  Exceptions  : thrown on wrong or missing arguments
  Caller      : general, MappedSlice adaptors
  Status      : At Risk
              : under development
 
Code:

public Listref Bio::EnsEMBL::MappedSlice::AUTOLOAD ( )
  Arg[1..N]   : Arguments passed on to the calls on the underlying slices.
  Example     : my @simple_features = @{ $mapped_slice->get_all_SimpleFeatures };
  Description : Aggregate data gathered from composing Slices.
                This will call Slice->get_all_* and combine the results.
                Coordinates will be transformed to be on the container slice
                coordinate system.
                Calls involving DAS features are skipped since the DAS adaptor
                handles coordinate conversions natively.
  Return type : listref of features (same type as corresponding Slice method)
  Exceptions  : none
  Caller      : general
  Status      : At Risk
              : under development
 
Code:

public Int Bio::EnsEMBL::MappedSlice::centrepoint ( )
  Example     : my $centrepoint = $mapped_slice->centrepoint;
  Description : Returns the centrepoint of the container slice.
  Return type : Int
  Exceptions  : none

public Bio::EnsEMBL::MappedSliceContainer Bio::EnsEMBL::MappedSlice::container ( )
  Arg[1]      : (optional) Bio::EnsEMBL::MappedSliceContainer - the container
                this object is attached to
  Example     : my $container = $mapped_slice->container;
                print $container->ref_slice->name, "\\n";
  Description : Getter/setter for the container this object is attached to. The
                container will give you access to the reference slice, a common
                artificial container slice, and a mapper to map to it from the
                container coord system.
                The implementation uses a weak reference to attach the container
                since the container holds a list of MappedSlices itself.
