       Bio::Seq::SeqFactory - Instantiation of generic Bio::PrimarySeqI (or derived) objects
       through a factory


           use Bio::Seq::SeqFactory;
           my $factory = Bio::Seq::SeqFactory->new();
           my $primaryseq = $factory->create( -seq => 'WYRAVLC',
                                              -id  => 'name'     );

           # Create Bio::Seq instead of Bio::PrimarySeq objects:
           my $factory = Bio::Seq::SeqFactory->new( -type => 'Bio::Seq' );


       This object will build Bio::PrimarySeqI and Bio::SeqI objects generically.


   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 _

        Title   : new
        Usage   : my $obj = Bio::Seq::SeqFactory->new();
        Function: Builds a new Bio::Seq::SeqFactory object
        Returns : Bio::Seq::SeqFactory
        Args    : -type => string, name of a PrimarySeqI derived class
                           This is optional. Default=Bio::PrimarySeq.

        Title   : create
        Usage   : my $seq = $seqbuilder->create(-seq => 'CAGT', -id => 'name');
        Function: Instantiates new Bio::SeqI (or one of its child classes)
                  This object allows us to genericize the instantiation of sequence
        Returns : Bio::PrimarySeq object (default)
                  The return type is configurable using new(-type =>"...").
        Args    : initialization parameters specific to the type of sequence
                  object we want.  Typically
                  -seq        => $str,
                  -display_id => $name

        Title   : type
        Usage   : $obj->type($newval)
        Returns : value of type
        Args    : newvalue (optional)
