Bio::Seq::SeqFactory - Instantiates a new Bio::PrimarySeqI (or derived class) through a factory
use Bio::Seq::SeqFactory; my $factory = Bio::Seq::SeqFactory->new(); my $seq = $factory->create(-seq => 'WYRAVLC', -id => 'name'); # If you want the factory to create Bio::Seq objects instead # of the default Bio::PrimarySeq objects, use the -type parameter: my $factory = Bio::Seq::SeqFactory->new(-type => 'Bio::Seq');
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.

rather than to the module maintainer directly. Many experienced and reponsive experts will be able look at the problem and quickly address it. Please include a thorough description of the problem with code and data examples if at all possible.

The rest of the documentation details each of the object methods. Internal methods are usually preceded with a _
Title : new Usage : my $obj = Bio::Seq::SeqFactory->new(); Function: Builds a new Bio::Seq::SeqFactory object Returns : Bio::Seq::SeqFactory Args : -type => string, name of a PrimarySeqI derived class This is optional. Default=Bio::PrimarySeq.
Title : create Usage : my $seq = $seqbuilder->create(-seq => 'CAGT', -id => 'name'); Function: Instantiates new Bio::SeqI (or one of its child classes) This object allows us to genericize the instantiation of sequence objects. Returns : Bio::PrimarySeq object (default) The return type is configurable using new(-type =>"..."). Args : initialization parameters specific to the type of sequence object we want. Typically -seq => $str, -display_id => $name
Title : type Usage : $obj->type($newval) Function: Returns : value of type Args : newvalue (optional)
