Description

Usage

read.MIAME(filename = NULL, widget = getOption("BioC")$Base$use.widgets, ...)

filename Filename from which to read MIAME information.
widget Logical. If TRUE and a filename is not given, a widget is used to enter information.

Details

Notice that the MIAME class tries to cover the MIAME entries that are not covered by other classes in Bioconductor. Namely, experimental design, samples, hybridizations, normalization controls, and pre-processing information.

The function scan is used to read. The file must be a flat file with the different entries for the instance of MIAME class separated by carriage returns. The order should be: name, lab, contact, title, abstract, and url.

Alternatively a widget can be used.

Value

An object of class MIAME.
