Bio::SeqEvolution::EvolutionI - the interface for evolving sequences
# not an instantiable class
This is the interface that all classes that mutate sequence objects in constant fashion must implement. A good example is Bio::SeqEvolution::DNAPoint.
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 list. Your participation is much appreciated.

The rest of the documentation details each of the object methods. Internal methods are usually preceded with a _
Title : annotation Usage : $obj->annotation($newval) Function: Get the annotation collection for this annotatable object. Example : Returns : a Bio::AnnotationCollectionI implementing object, or undef Args : on set, new value (a Bio::AnnotationCollectionI implementing object, optional) (an implementation may not support changing the annotation collection)
Title : seq Usage : $obj->seq($newval) Function: Set the sequence object for the original sequence Returns : The sequence object Args : newvalue (optional)
Setting this will reset mutation and generated mutation counters.
Title : next_seq Usage : $obj->next_seq Function: Evolve the reference sequence to desired level Returns : A new sequence object mutated from the reference sequence Args : -
Title : mutate Usage : $obj->mutate Function: mutate the sequence at the given location according to the model Returns : true Args : integer, start location of the mutation, required argument
Called from next_seq().
