Project Status: WIP - Initial development is in progress, but there has not yet been a stable, usable release suitable for the public. cran version

This is an R package that provides classes to store and manipulate taxonomic data. Most of the classes can be used like base R vectors. This project is a partial rewrite of the previous version of taxa and is currently under development.

A note about recent changes:

This is beginning of a complete rewrite of the previous taxa package to make the more basic component classes more like base R vectors. The taxmap class is not yet reimplemented, but will be similar to the class in the previous versions of taxa. The old version of taxa has been incorporated into the metacoder package until this version of taxa is mature, at which time metacoder will also use this version.
