Many file formats such as embl and genbank include information about species and their classifications. The objects in this package are designed to represent that information regardless of where the data is actualy stoored. It follows a model where the TaxonFactory is responsible for creating and managing Taxon instances, and Taxon instances are potentialy ultra-light-weight objects.
The package is deprecated. It is replaced by org.biojavax.bio.taxa. This package has better persistence to biosql.
