BioX::Seq is a simple sequence class that can be used to represent biological sequences. It was designed as a compromise between using simple strings and hashes to hold sequences and using the rather bloated objects of Bioperl. Features (or, depending on your viewpoint, bugs) include auto-stringification and context-dependent transformations. It is meant be used primarily as the return object of the BioX::Seq::Stream and BioX::Seq::Fetch parsers, but there may be occasions where it is useful in its own right.
BioX::Seq::Stream and BioX::Seq::Fetch can be used to read in sequence objects in a streaming or random-access fashion from FASTA and FASTQ files.
