Bio::MAGETAB::Protocol - MAGE-TAB protocol class

SYNOPSIS ^

 use Bio::MAGETAB::Protocol;

This class is used to describe experimental protocols in MAGE-TAB. It can either contain all the information about a protocol itself, or it can link to a protocol entry in a suitable database via its superclass. See the DatabaseEntry class for superclass methods.

ATTRIBUTES ^

name (required)

The name of the protocol (data type: String).

text (optional)

A free-text description of the protocol, giving all the steps in the procedure (data type: String).

The hardware used in the protocol. Multiple hardwares must be concatenated into a single value (data type: String).

The type of the protocol ('nucleic_acid_extraction','labeling' etc.; data type: Bio::MAGETAB::ControlledTerm).

contact (optional)

A contact for more information on the protocol. Multiple contacts must be concatenated into a single value (data type: String).

METHODS ^

Each attribute has accessor (get_*) and mutator (set_*) methods, and also predicate (has_*) and clearer (clear_*) methods where the attribute is optional. Where an attribute represents a one-to-many relationship the mutator accepts an arrayref and the accessor returns an array.
