       Bio::AlignIO::msf - msf sequence input/output stream


       Do not use this module directly.  Use it via the Bio::AlignIO class.


       This object can transform Bio::Align::AlignI objects to and from msf flat file databases.


       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.
