The rest of the documentation details each of the object methods. Internal methods are usually preceded with a _


 Title   : marker_name
 Usage   : my $name = $genotype->marker_name();
 Function: Get the marker name for a genotype result
 Returns : string
 Args    : none


 Title   : individual_id
 Usage   : my $indid = $genotype->individual_id();
 Function: Gets the individual id associated with a genotype
           This is effectively a back reference since we will typically
           associate a genotype with an individual with an 
           individual HAS-A genotype relationship.
 Returns : unique id string for an individual
 Args    : none


 Title   : annotation
 Usage   : my $annotation_collection = $genotype->annotation;
 Function: Get/set a Bio::AnnotationCollectionI for this genotype
 Returns : Bio::AnnotationCollectionI object
 Args    : [optional set] Bio::AnnotationCollectionI object


 Title   : get_Alleles
 Usage   : my @alleles = $genotype->get_Alleles();
 Function: Get the alleles for a given marker and individual
 Returns : array of alleles (strings in many implementations)
 Args    : none
