NAME ^

Bio::NEXUS::AssumptionsBlock - Represents ASSUMPTIONS block of a NEXUS file

SYNOPSIS ^

 if ( $type =~ /assumptions/i ) {
     $block_object = new Bio::NEXUS::AssumptionsBlock($block_type, $block, $verbose);
 }

DESCRIPTION ^

If a NEXUS block is an assumptions block, this module parses the block and stores the assumptions data. Currently this only works with SOAP weight data, but we hope to extend its functionality.

FEEDBACK ^

All feedback (bugs, feature enhancements, etc.) are greatly appreciated.
