Summary
Bio::Map::CytoMap - A Bio::MapI compliant map implementation handling cytogenic bands
Package variables
No package variables defined.
Inherit
Bio::Map::SimpleMap
Synopsis
    use Bio::Map::CytoMap;
my $map = Bio::Map::CytoMap->new(-name => 'human1',
-species => $human);
foreach my $marker ( @markers ) { # get a list of markers somewhere
$map->add_element($marker);
}
Description
This is the simple implementation of cytogenetic maps based on
Bio::Map::MapI. It handles the essential storage of name, species,
type, and units as well as in memory representation of the elements of
a map.
For CytoMaps type is hard coded to be 'cytogeneticmap' and
units are set to '' but can be set to something else.

 Title   : new
Usage : my $obj = Bio::Map::CytoMap->new();
Function: Builds a new Bio::Map::CytoMap object
Returns : Bio::Map::CytoMap
Args : -name => name of map (string)
-species => species for this map (Bio::Species) [optional]
-elements=> elements to initialize with
(arrayref of Bio::Map::MappableI objects) [optional]
-uid => Unique Id

Usage : my $type = $map->type
Function: Get hard-coded Map type
Returns : String coding Map type (always 'cyto')
Args : none

 Title   : length
Usage : my $length = $map->length();
Function: Retrieves the length of the map,
Returns : 0 since length is not calculatable for cytogenetic maps

Please direct usage questions or support issues to the mailing list:
bioperl-l@bioperl.org
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.
