       Bio::AnnotatableI - the base interface an annotatable object must implement


           use Bio::SeqIO;
           # get an annotatable object somehow: for example, Bio::SeqI objects
           # are annotatable
           my $seqio = Bio::SeqIO->new(-fh => \*STDIN, -format => 'genbank');
           while (my $seq = $seqio->next_seq()) {
               # $seq is-a Bio::AnnotatableI, hence:
               my $ann_coll = $seq->annotation();
               # $ann_coll is-a Bio::AnnotationCollectionI, hence:
               my @all_anns = $ann_coll->get_Annotations();
               # do something with the annotation objects


       This is the base interface that all annotatable objects must implement. A good example is
       Bio::Seq which is an AnnotableI object.


   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)
