Interface RemoteFeature

  • All Superinterfaces:

    All Known Implementing Classes:

    public interface RemoteFeature
    extends StrandedFeature
    A feature that indicates that there is some remote feature that can't be represented entirely on a single Sequence.

    These are the sort of features that represent things like the horible Embl remote feature spans (such as AL24199:100..200). The method getRemoteFeature should return a Feature on another Sequence that properly represents the Location. This Seqeunce will often be an Assembly of the parent Sequence to this Feature, and the Sequence associated with the remote Location sequence ID. Thse Features are also applicable to the case when a portion of a Sequence is projected but some Feature overlaps the boundary of the projected portion.

        Feature getRemoteFeature()
                          throws BioException
        Retrieve the Feature on some assembly Sequence that can represent this RemoteFeature properly.

        This method should be equivalent to calling getResolver().resolve(this).

        the Feature on another Sequence that this is projected onto
