Bio::NEXUS::Node - Provides functions for manipulating nodes in trees

new Bio::NEXUS::Node;

Provides a few useful functions for nodes.

All feedback (bugs, feature enhancements, etc.) are all greatly appreciated. There are no mailing lists at this time for the Bio::NEXUS::Node module, so send all relevant contributions to Dr. Weigang Qiu (weigang@genectr.hunter.cuny.edu).
