NAME

Bio::MAGETAB::Node - Abstract node class

SYNOPSIS

 use Bio::MAGETAB::Node;

DESCRIPTION

This class is an abstract class from which all MAGE-TAB SDRF Node classes are derived. It cannot be instantiated directly. See the BaseClass class for superclass methods.

ATTRIBUTES

inputEdges (optional)

A list of Edges leading into this node (data type: Bio::MAGETAB::Edge).

outputEdges (optional)

A list of Edges leading out of this node (data type: Bio::MAGETAB::Edge).

comments (optional)

A list of user-defined comments for the node (data type: Bio::MAGETAB::Comment).

sdrfRows (optional)

A list of SDRF rows to which this node belongs. This is used to link channel and factor information to each node in the graph (data type: Bio::MAGETAB::SDRFRow).

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.
