[Bioperl-l] retrieving gene model from gff database

probably kind of a basic question but I'm somehow unable to answer it
I have the most recent gadfly GFF database loaded. now I simply want to
get the gene models for selected genes - like searching with
get_feature_by_name(-class => "Gene", -name=>"Gene_of_interest") - and
to find out whether they contain annotated introns or not.
first problem is that the class gene does not seem to be supported by
the GFF database. do I need to use an aggregator for that? if I have to
use an aggregator, how do I search for the gene then? so far I was only
able to get the gene when searching for class 'Sequence'. but this
won't yield a gene-structure then, right?
thank you in advance!
