NAME

Bio::AlignIO::po - po MSA Sequence input/output stream

SYNOPSIS

Do not use this module directly. Use it via the Bio::AlignIO class.

DESCRIPTION

This object can transform Bio::SimpleAlign objects to and from 'po' format flat file databases. 'po' format is the native format of the POA alignment program (Lee C, Grasso C, Sharlow MF, 'Multiple sequence alignment using partial order graphs', Bioinformatics (2002), 18(3):452-64).
