Bio::Ontology::OBOterm(3) User Contributed Perl Documentation Bio::Ontology::OBOterm(3)

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.
