Re: Please help me in using e-PCR parser module "Bio::Tools::EPCR"

I am not sure I can help you at this time, but I would encourage you to use the mailing list for assistance.
 There is nothing inherent in the tool for doing anything with exons but if you want to print a feature in GFF format I would look at Bio::Tools::GFF or Bio::FeatureIO (if that still works)

Another thing in this example is to change 'fasta' to 'genbank' for the $seqout object so you can see the feature annotated in the sequence in genbank format.

Dear Prof. Jason E. Stajich,

I have a e-PCR output file on genomic sequence, and I want to extract the exon region between genomic position given in e-PCR output. Could you kindly tell me how can I use your program for this purpose.

Following are the commands and code I have used to test on example files provided with Bioperl, but the output is just sequence of "genomic-seq.fasta".  

folder "BioPerl-1.6.923/t/data/

 # A simple annotation pipeline wrapper for ePCR data
    # assuming ePCR data is already generated in file genomic-seq.epcr
    # and sequence data is in fasta format in file called genomic-seq.fasta

use Bio::Tools::EPCR;
use Bio::SeqIO;
my $parser = Bio::Tools::EPCR->new(-file => 'genomic-seq.epcr');
my $seqio = Bio::SeqIO->new(-format => 'fasta', -file => 'genomic-seq.fasta');
my $seq = $seqio->next_seq || die("cannot get a seq object from SeqIO");

while( my $feat = $parser->next_feature ) {
        # add EPCR annotation to a sequence
my $seqout = Bio::SeqIO->new(-format => 'fasta');
I use following command to run your script, both example files are in the working directory

Out put is fasta sequence from "genomic-seq.fasta".

Could you please tell me where I am doing wrong, and how can I also put the GFF3 file to get the the exon sequence?

Thanks a lot for your kind help.
