Genoman (short for genome analysis) is an object-oriented Perl library for accessing and manipulating genome annotation data (e.g. genomic locations of genes and other features, alignments of transcript sequences to a genome, and alignments between different genomes). Genoman defines a set of classes for representing such data. The classes are designed to be flexible and sufficiently efficient to allow their use in analysis pipelines for dealing with large data sets. The library is designed to allow data retrieval from different types of files and databases in a consistent manner, into objects of the same classes. Genoman can be supplemented with custom-written database interface classes for accessing particular databases.
