The rest of the documentation details each of the object methods. Internal methods are usually preceded with a _


  Title   : new
  Usage   : $dna = Bio::LiveSeq::DNA->new(-seq => "atcgaccaatggacctca",
                                          -offset => 3 );

  Function: generates a new Bio::LiveSeq::DNA
  Returns : reference to a new object of class DNA
  Errorcode -1
  Args    : a string
        AND an optional offset to create nucleotide labels (default is 1, i.e.
            starting the count of labels from "1") -> do not bother using it ->
            it could be used by alternative loaders !EMBL format
  NOTE    : strand of DNA is set to 1 by default
