Bio::Variation::IO::xml - XML sequence variation input/output stream
Do not use this module directly. Use it via the Bio::Variation::IO class.
This object can transform Bio::Variation::SeqDiff objects to and from XML file databases.
The XML format, although consistent, is still evolving. The current DTD for it is at http://www.ebi.ac.uk/mutations/DTD/seqDiff.dtd.
To use this code you need the module XML::Twig which creates an interface to XML::Parser to read XML and modules XML::Writer and IO::String to write XML out.
User feedback is an integral part of the evolution of this and other Bioperl modules. Send your comments and suggestions preferably to the Bioperl mailing lists Your participation is much appreciated.
