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