Bio::MAGETAB::MatrixColumn - MAGE-TAB matrix column class
This class is used to describe the columns of a MAGE-TAB data matrix. It acts as a mapping between a numbered column in the matrix, the quantitation type of that column, and the SDRF node or nodes to which it applies. See the BaseClass class for superclass methods.
- columnNumber (required)
The number of the column in the data matrix. Columns are assumed to be numbered from left to right, starting at one for the first data column; however this is not constrained by the model and you may use whatever local conventions you prefer (data type: Integer).
- quantitationType (required)
The quantitation type of the data contained in the column (data type: Bio::MAGETAB::ControlledTerm).
- referencedNodes (required)
A list of Nodes from the SDRF to which the data in this column applies (data type: Bio::MAGETAB::Node).
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.
