       Bio::SeqEvolution::EvolutionI - the interface for evolving sequences


           # not an instantiable class


       This is the interface that all classes that mutate sequence objects in constant fashion
       must implement. A good example is Bio::SeqEvolution::DNAPoint.


   Mailing Lists
       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.
                  - General discussion  - About the mailing lists

       Please direct usage questions or support issues to the mailing list:

       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.

   Reporting Bugs
       Report bugs to the Bioperl bug tracking system to help us keep track of the bugs and their
       resolution. Bug reports can be submitted via the web:

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

        Title   : annotation
        Usage   : $obj->annotation($newval)
        Function: Get the annotation collection for this annotatable object.
        Example :
        Returns : a Bio::AnnotationCollectionI implementing object, or undef
        Args    : on set, new value (a Bio::AnnotationCollectionI
                  implementing object, optional) (an implementation may not
                  support changing the annotation collection)

       See Bio::AnnotationCollectionI

        Title   : seq
        Usage   : $obj->seq($newval)
        Function: Set the sequence object for the original sequence
        Returns : The sequence object
        Args    : newvalue (optional)

       Setting this will reset mutation and generated mutation counters.

         Title   : next_seq
         Usage   : $obj->next_seq
         Function: Evolve the reference sequence to desired level
         Returns : A new sequence object mutated from the reference sequence
         Args    : -

         Title   : mutate
         Usage   : $obj->mutate
         Function: mutate the sequence at the given location according to the model
         Returns : true
         Args    : integer, start location of the mutation, required argument

       Called from next_seq().
