NAME

Bio::Graph::Edge - encapsulation of an interaction between 2 Bio::Seq objects

SYNOPSIS

  ## get an interaction between two nodes ##

  my $edge  = $gr->edge( $gr->nodes_by_id('P12345'),
                         $gr->nodes_by_id('P23456'));
  my $id    = $edge->object_id();
  my $wt    = $edge->weight();
  my @nodes = $edge->nodes();

DESCRIPTION

This class contains information about a bimolecular interaction. At present it just contains data about its component node, a weight (if set) and an identifier. Subclasses could hold more specific information.

 Name       : new
 Purpose    : constructor for an edge object
 Usage      : my $edge = Bio::Graph::Edge->new(nodes => [$node1,$node2]
                                               id => $id);
              $graph->add_edge($edge);
 Returns    : a new Bio::Graph::Edge object 
 Arguments  : hash nodes            => array reference of 2 nodes
                   id               => edge id
                   weight(optional) => weight score.
