Modware: a BioPerl based API for Chado
We are announcing a new Sourceforge Project called Modware. It is an object-oriented API written in Perl that creates BioPerl object representations of biological features stored in a Chado database. It basically creates a Bio::Seq object for chromosomes in Chado and creates Bio::SeqFeature::Gene objects for protein coding transcripts stored in Chado. Things like contigs are represented as Bio::SeqFeature::Generic objects. We also provide many methods for manipulating these objects once they are in memory.
