Bio::MAGETAB::Assay - MAGE-TAB assay class
This class is used to store information about assays in MAGE-TAB. This is a generic class which can represent any assay type, specified via its technologyType attribute. Assays which specifically represent hybridization events should use a 'hybridization' ControlledTerm as their technologyType and should also link to an ArrayDesign. See the Event class for superclass methods.
- technologyType (required)
The type of assay that was performed (hybridization, rtPCR, etc.; data type: Bio::MAGETAB::ControlledTerm).
- arrayDesign (optional)
The array design associated with the assay. Typically this will only be used for hybridization Assays (data type: Bio::MAGETAB::ArrayDesign)
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.
