Friends I got a problem when downloading first intron sequence from ensembl. I used this code perfectly few months ago but now it give me a warning message such as, Can't call method "canonical_transcript" on an undefined value at ./script.pl line 42, <FILE> line 100.  without having any new line at the end of the input sequence file why this happen. can some one help me.

here is the code

#!/usr/bin/perl

use strict;
use warnings;
use Bio::EnsEMBL::Registry;
use Bio::SeqIO;
use Getopt::Long;

my $registry = 'Bio::EnsEMBL::Registry';

## Load the databases into the registry
$registry->load_registry_from_db(
  -host => 'ensembldb.ensembl.org',
  -user => 'anonymous'
);

## Get the gene adaptor for human
my $gene_adaptor = $registry->get_adaptor( 'Human', 'Core', 'Gene' );
#my $gene_adaptor = $registry->get_adaptor( 'Mouse', 'Core', 'Gene' );

# declearing global variable 
#my @arra = @_;
#my $line = $_;
my $line;
#my $l=$_;
   #opening the output file and write the sequences for abc file
   open (FILE_OUTPUT, ">my_sequence") or die "can't write";

   #opening the input file which is having ensemble gene IDS
   open (FILE,"seq") or die "Error";

    my @array = <FILE>;#assigning input file content to @array 
        #run foreach loop and real each line by line and each line assigning to $line var
    foreach $line(@array){
          # this removes new line charactor
          chomp $line;
        # Fetch my gene of interest usning ensemble ID
        my $gene = $gene_adaptor->fetch_by_stable_id( $line );

        ## Get all transcripts for the gene
        ## Get canonical transcript for the gene which is the longest transcript
        my $transcript = $gene->canonical_transcript;

        ## For the canonical transcript get all introns and print the sequence of the first intron of each
          my $introns = $transcript->get_all_Introns;
          #my $first_intron = @$introns[0];
        if (@$introns){
        my $first_intron = @$introns[0];
        # print the gene stable ID, transcript stable ID,gene external name ,
        #seq length and firstintron sequence to the output fiel
          FILE_OUTPUT ->print
          ("\>", $gene->stable_id,";",$transcript->stable_id,";",$gene->external_name,";","sequence length",";",
        $first_intron->length,"\n",$first_intron->seq,"\n");
}
              
}
#close input file
close (FILE);
#close output file
close (FILE_OUTPUT);

The error message tells you what's wrong. Your gene object is undefined which means that the gene ID you're using doesn't exist in the Ensembl database version you're using. If you want your script to output the same thing as a few months ago then make sure you use the same version of the database you had then or if you want to use a more recent version, check that your gene IDs are still valid.

This is correct. You could put in a loop like:

if ($gene) {

 my $transcript = $gene->canonical_transcript;

}

else {

print $gene->stable_id, "not found.\n"

}

 

Of you could use the ArchiveStableIDAdaptor to find the genes using out-of-date IDs.

Thanks Emily, I got the point you mentioned...
