org.biomage.DesignElement: Javadoc index of package org.biomage.DesignElement.
Reporter: A Design Element that represents some biological material (clone, oligo, etc.) on an array which will report on some biosequence or biosequences. The derived data from the measured data of its Features represents the presence or absence of the biosequence or biosequences it is reporting on in the BioAssay. Reporters are Identifiable and several Features on the same array can be mapped to the same reporter as can Features from a different ArrayDesign. The granularity of the Reporters independence is dependent on the technology and the intent of the ArrayDesign. Oligos using mature technologies can ...
DesignElement_package: The classes of this package are the contained classes of the ArrayDesign and describe through the DesignElements what is intended to be at each location of the Array. The Feature describes an intended location on the Array, the Reporter the Oligo, Clone, PCR Product that is on a Feature and the CompositeSequence which combines Reporters or CompositeSequences into what the child DesignElements are meant to represent biologically, e.g. a Gene, Exon, SpliceVariant, etc.
CompositeCompositeMap: A CompositeCompositeMap is the description of how source CompositeSequences are transformed into a target CompositeSequence. For instance, several CompositeSequences could represent different sequence regions for a Gene and could be mapped to different CompositeSequences, each representing a different splice variant for that Gene.
CompositePosition: The location in the compositeSequence target's sequence to which a source compositeSequence maps. The association to MismatchInformation allows the specification, usually for control purposes, of deviations from the CompositeSequence's BioMaterial.
ReporterPosition: The location in the composite target's sequence to which a source reporter maps. The association to MismatchInformation allows the specification, usually for control purposes, of deviations from the CompositeSequence's BioMaterial.
ReporterCompositeMap: A ReporterCompositeMap is the description of how source Reporters are transformed into a target CompositeSequences. For instance, several reporters that tile across a section of a chromosome could be mapped to a CompositeSequence.
FeatureInformation: As part of the map information, allows the association of one or more differences in the BioMaterial on a feature from the BioMaterial of the Reporter. Useful for control purposes such as in Affymetrix probe pairs.
FeatureReporterMap: A FeatureReporterMap is the description of how source features are transformed into a target reporter. These would map replicate features for a reporter to the reporter.
DesignElement: An element of an array. This is generally of type feature but can be specified as reporters or compositeSequence for arrays that are abstracted from a physical array.
MismatchInformation: Describes how a reporter varies from its ReporterCharacteristics sequence(s) or how a Feature varies from its Reporter sequence.
CompositeSequence: A collection of Reporter or CompositeSequence Design Elements, annotated through the association to BioSequence.
FeatureLocation: Specifies where a feature is located relative to a grid.
Feature: An intended position on an array.
Position: Specifies a position on an array.
