Bio::Variation::IO::xml - XML sequence variation input/output stream
Do not use this module directly. Use it via the Bio::Variation::IO class.
This object can transform Bio::Variation::SeqDiff objects to and from XML file
The XML format, although consistent, is still evolving. The current DTD for it
is at <http://www.ebi.ac.uk/mutations/DTDE/seqDiff.dtd>.
To use this code you need the module XML::Twig which creates an interface to
XML::Parser to read XML and modules XML::Writer and IO::String to write XML
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
lists Your participation is much appreciated.
