NAME ^

Bio::MAGETAB::Measurement - MAGE-TAB measurement class

SYNOPSIS ^

 use Bio::MAGETAB::Measurement;

DESCRIPTION ^

This class is used to describe measurements in MAGE-TAB. It can describe individual values, or ranges of values, associated with an optional unit. See the BaseClass class for superclass methods.

ATTRIBUTES ^

measurementType (required)

The type of measurement (i.e., the quantity being measured). This is equivalent to the ControlledTerm 'category' attribute (data type: String).

value (optional)

A single value for the measurement. If a range of values is being described this attribute should be left unset, and minValue and maxValue used instead (data type: String).

minValue (optional)

The lower end of a range of values for the measurement. If a single value is being specified, just use 'value' instead (data type: String).

maxValue (optional)

The upper end of a range of values for the measurement. If a single value is being specified, just use 'value' instead (data type: String).

unit (optional)

The unit of the measurement (data type: Bio::MAGETAB::ControlledTerm).

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.
