Bio::Ontology::OBOterm - representation of OBO terms
$term = Bio::Ontology::OBOterm->new ( -identifier => "GO:0005623", -name => "Cell", -definition => "The basic structural and functional unit ...", -is_obsolete => 0, -comment => "" ); $term->add_reference( @refs ); $term->add_secondary_id( @ids ); $term->add_synonym( @synonym ); # etc.
This is data holder class for OBO terms. It is currently a dummy class since we anticipate that the OBO term will become more richer with more features being added to OBO flat-file format.
