       Bio::Cluster::FamilyI - Family Interface


           # see the implementations of this interface for details

           my $cluster= $cluster->new(-description=>"POLYUBIQUITIN",
                                      -members    =>[$seq1,$seq2]);
           my @members = $cluster->get_members();
           my @sub_members = $cluster->get_members(-species=>"homo sapiens");


       This interface if for a Family object representing a family of biological objects. A
       generic implementation for this may be found a Bio::Cluster::Family.


   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.

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

         We don't mandate but encourage implementors to support at least the
         following named parameters upon object initialization.

        Arguments          Description
        ---------          -----------
        -family_id         the name of the family
        -description       the consensus description of the family
        -annotation_score  the confidence by which the consensus description is
                           representative of the family
        -members           the members belonging to the family
        -alignment         the multiple alignment of the members

        Title   : family_id
        Usage   : Bio::Cluster::FamilyI->family_id("znfp");
        Function: get/set for the family id
        Returns : the family id
        Args    : the family id

        Title   : family_score
        Usage   : Bio::Cluster::FamilyI->family_score(95);
        Function: get/set for the score of algorithm used to generate
                  the family if present
        Returns : the score
        Args    : the score

        Function: get/set for cluster_score which
                  represent the score in which the clustering
                  algorithm assigns to this cluster.
