I am wondering if I knew what this error message exactly meant, if I could
discern my error. 
I don't see much difference in this program and programs that worked.
Can I assume that the new worked because an index file exists?
I don't know how the filehandle UTR_TT_GENES gets involved.
Maybe I should use some other module, but I really would like to have
get_Seq_by_id functionality.

The error message:
Dpse ortholog = Dpse_GA17307
fetching GA17307
Can't call method "seq" on an undefined value at Match-emNEWTEST.pl line 84,
<UTR_TT_GENES> line 4.

Relevant code:
use strict;
use Bio::DB::Fasta;
use Bio::Tools::SeqWords;
use Bio::Seq;
use Bio::SeqIO;
my $db = 
                                -makeid => \&make_my_id);
my $pse_obj = $db->get_Seq_by_id('GA17307');
my $pse_sequence = $pse_obj->seq;
