Bio::Map::CytoMarker - An object representing a marker.
$o_usat = Bio::Map::CytoMarker->new(-name=>'Chad Super Marker 2', -position => $pos);
This object handles markers with a position in a cytogenetic map known. This marker will have a name and a position.

The rest of the documentation details each of the object methods. Internal methods are usually preceded with a _
Title : get_position_class Usage : my $position = $marker->get_position_object(); Function: To get an object of the default Position class for this Marker. Subclasses should redefine this method. The Position returned needs to be a L<Bio::Map::PositionI> with -element set to self. Returns : L<Bio::Map::PositionI> Args : none for an 'empty' PositionI object, optionally Bio::Map::MapI and value string to set the Position's -map and -value attributes.
The numeric values for cutogeneic loctions go from the p tip of chromosome 1, down to the q tip and similarly throgh consecutive chromosomes, through X and end the the q tip of X. See Bio::Map::CytoPosition::cytorange for more details.
Title : get_chr Usage : my $mychr = $marker->get_chr(); Function: Read only method for the chromosome string of the location. A shortcut to $marker->position->chr(). Returns : chromosome value Args : [optional] new chromosome value
