Bio::PopGen::IndividualI(3) An individual who has Genotype or Sequence Results


# Get a Bio::PopGen::IndividualI somehow
# test if it has alleles/genotypes for a given marker
if( $ind->has_marker($markername) ) {
# get the unique id
print $ind->unique_id, "\n";
# get the number of results (genotypes)
print $ind->num_results;
