Hi Wei, 
You'll need to install the trunk code to access this method; the "release" is woefully out of date (not that I'm helping much on that these days). Use git to obtain the latests bioperl-live and bioperl-run from https://github.com/bioperl/, or the synchronized repos

  Subject: use Bio::Search::Tiling::MapTiling

Dear Dr. Jensen, I am looking for a bioperl module that can be used to concatenate HSP from a blast into a sequence. I found that your Bio::Search::Tiling::MapTilingcan do exactly that. I used your example script to test it. I got an error message:“Can't locate object method "get_tiled_alns" via package "Bio::Search::Tiling::MapTiling" at get_hsp.pl line 29, <GEN1> line 2630”.It seems that method “get_tiled_alns” is not in the bioperl we installed. Is that possible? The script I used is this one:  use Bio::SearchIO;use Bio::Search::Tiling::MapTiling # Note that to get one hit, the user first blasts# the set of contigs against single sequence, the reference sequence.# The result of this BLAST run is in 'contig_tile.bls' $blio = Bio::SearchIO->new( -file => 'contig_tile.bls');$result = $blio->next_result;$hit = $result->next_hit;$tiling = Bio::Search::Tiling::MapTiling->new($hit);@alns = $tiling->get_tiled_alns('query'); # here's the concatenation:$concat_seq_obj = $alns[0]->get_seq_by_id('query');
