       Bio::Factory::SequenceFactoryI - This interface allows for generic building of sequences
       in factories which create sequences (like SeqIO)


       # do not use this object directly it is an interface # get a
       Bio::Factory::SequenceFactoryI object like

           use Bio::Seq::SeqFactory;
           my $seqbuilder = Bio::Seq::SeqFactory->new('-type' => 'Bio::PrimarySeq');

           my $seq = $seqbuilder->create(-seq => 'ACTGAT',
                                         -display_id => 'exampleseq');

           print "seq is a ", ref($seq), "\n";


       A generic way to build Sequence objects via a pluggable factory.  This reduces the amount
       of code that looks like

         if( $type  eq 'Bio::PrimarySeq' ) { ... }
         elsif( $type eq 'Bio::Seq::RichSeq' ) { ... }


   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.

        Args    : initialization parameters specific to the type of sequence
                  object we want.  Typically
