[Bioperl-l] Fate of Bio::Tools::PCRSimulation

Hi Florent,

I was recently thiking about something similar when adding 
delete/insert/ligate methods to Bio:;SeqUtils (now in bioperl-live). I 
was about to add a PCR method as well and I think it would fit in with 
that module. Similar to other methods in this module, the PCR method 
should be able to handle sequence features and annotations, so that the 
amplicons are fully annotated. I'd be willing to discuss this further 
and work with yuo on that if you like.
