NAME ^

Bio::MAGETAB::DesignElement - Abstract design element class

SYNOPSIS ^

 use Bio::MAGETAB::DesignElement;

DESCRIPTION ^

This class is an abstract class from which all MAGE-TAB DesignElement classes (Feature, Reporter, CompositeElement) are derived. It cannot be instantiated directly. See the BaseClass class for superclass methods.

ATTRIBUTES ^

chromosome (optional)

The chromosome from which the design element is derived. This is primarily used in either the Reporter or CompositeElement subclass to support coordinate-based design elements in data matrices. It is possible that these attributes will be moved to a more suitable subclass in subsequent model versions (data type: String).

startPosition (optional)

The start coordinate of the design element on the given chromosome (data type: Integer).

endPosition (optional)

The end coordinate of the design element on the given chromosome (data type: Integer).

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.
