Bio::LiveSeq::ChainI - Double linked chain data structure
This class generates and manipulates generic double linked list, chain, that can
be used to manage biological sequences.
The advantages over strings or plain arrays is the ease of tracking changes
(mutations) in the elements (sequence). The other side of the coin is that
these structures need consideraly more memory, but that is cheap and
constantly inceasing resource in computers.
User feedback is an integral part of the evolution of this and other Bioperl
modules. Send your comments and suggestions preferably to one of the Bioperl
mailing lists. Your participation is much appreciated.
