Bio::DB::Persistent::PrimarySeq - Proxy object for database PrimarySeq representations
Give standard usage here
This is a proxy object which will ferry calls to/from database for the heavy stuff (sequence data) while it stores the simple attributes in memory. This object is obtained from a DBAdaptor.
User feedback is an integral part of the evolution of this and other Bioperl modules. Send your comments and suggestions preferably to one of the Bioperl mailing lists. Your participation is much appreciated.
Please direct usage questions or support issues to the mailing list:
rather than to the module maintainer directly. Many experienced and reponsive experts will be able look at the problem and quickly address it. Please include a thorough description of the problem with code and data examples if at all possible.
Report bugs to the Bioperl bug tracking system to help us keep track the bugs and their resolution. Bug reports can be submitted via email or the web:

Example : Returns : value of primary_key (a scalar) Args : new value (a scalar, optional)
