class Bio::Alignment::OriginalAlignment

Bio::Alignment::OriginalAlignment is the BioRuby original multiple sequence alignment container class. It includes HashExtension.

It is recommended only to use methods defined in EnumerableExtension (and the each_seq method). The method only defined in this class might be obsoleted in the future.
