NAME

Bio::Factory::SequenceFactoryI - This interface allows for generic building of sequences in factories which create sequences (like SeqIO)

SYNOPSIS

# do not use this object directly it is an interface # get a Bio::Factory::SequenceFactoryI object like

    use Bio::Seq::SeqFactory;
    my $seqbuilder = new Bio::Seq::SeqFactory('type' => 'Bio::PrimarySeq');

    my $seq = $seqbuilder->create(-seq => 'ACTGAT',
                                  -display_id => 'exampleseq');

    print "seq is a ", ref($seq), "\n";

DESCRIPTION

A generic way to build Sequence objects via a pluggable factory. This reduces the amount of code that looks like

  if( $type  eq 'Bio::PrimarySeq' ) { ... } 
  elsif( $type eq 'Bio::Seq::RichSeq' ) { ... }

APPENDIX

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

create

 Title   : create
 Usage   : my $seq = $seqbuilder->create(-seq => 'CAGT', 
                                         -id => 'name');
 Function: Instantiates new Bio::PrimarySeqI (or one of its child classes)
           This object allows us to genericize the instantiation of sequence
           objects.
 Returns : Bio::PrimarySeqI
 Args    : initialization parameters specific to the type of sequence
           object we want.  Typically 
           -seq        => $str,
           -display_id => $name
