NAME

       Bio::Matrix::MatrixI - An interface for describing a Matrix

SYNOPSIS

         # Get a Matrix object

DESCRIPTION

       This is an interface describing how one should be able to interact with a matrix.  One can
       have a lot of information I suppose and this outline won't really work for PWM or PSSMs.
       We will have to derive a particular interface for those.

FEEDBACK

   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.

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

       bioperl-l@bioperl.org

       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 email or the web:
