NAME
Bio::Phenotype::MeSH::Term - A MeSH term SYNOPSIS
use Bio::Phenotype::MeSH::Term; # create a term object my $term = Bio::Phenotype::MeSH::Term->new (-id => 'D000001', -name => 'Dietary Fats', -description => 'dietary fats are...' ); # get a Bio::Phenotype::MeSH::Twig somehow... $term->add_twig($twig1); DESCRIPTION
This class keeps information about MeSH terms. MeSH stands for Medical Subject Headings and is one of the ways for annotaing biomedical literature. The terminology is maintained by National Library of Medicine of USA . See http://www.nlm.nih.gov/mesh/meshhome.html. In addition to id, name and description a term can know about its surrounding terms (Bio::Phenotype::MeSH::Twig) in the term hierarchy. This class is mainly used from Bio::DB::MeSH which retrieves terms over the Web. SEE ALSO

The rest of the documentation details each of the object methods. Internal methods are usually preceded with a _ id Title : id Usage : $obj->id( "r1" ); or print $obj->id(); Function: Set/get for the id. Returns : A id [scalar]. Args : A id [scalar] (optional). name Title : name Usage : $obj->name( "r1" ); or print $obj->name(); Function: Set/get for the name. Returns : A name [scalar]. Args : A name [scalar] (optional). description Title : description Usage : $obj->description( "r1" ); or print $obj->description(); Function: Set/get for the description. Returns : A description [scalar]. Args : A description [scalar] (optional). add_synonym Title : add_synonym Usage : $obj->add_synonym( @synonyms ); or $obj->add_synonym( $synonym ); Function: Pushes one or more synonyms for the term term into the list of synonyms. Returns : Args : scalar(s). each_synonym Title : each_synonym() Usage : @gs = $obj->each_synonym(); Function: Returns a list of gene symbols [scalars, most likely Strings] associated with this phenotype. Returns : A list of scalars. Args : purge_synonyms Usage : $obj->purge_synonym(); Function: Deletes the list of synonyms to this term. Returns : A list of scalars. Args : Twig management Each MeSH term belongs to a complex tree like hierarchy of terms where each term can appear multiple times. The immediately surrounding nodes of the tree are modelled in twigs. See: Bio::Phenotype::MeSH::Twig. add_twig Title : add_twig Usage : $obj->add_twig( @twigs ); or $obj->add_twig( $twig ); Function: Pushes one or more twig term names [scalars, most likely Strings] into the list of twigs. Returns : Args : scalar(s). each_twig Title : each_twig() Usage : @gs = $obj->each_twig(); Function: Returns a list of gene symbols [scalars, most likely Strings] associated with this phenotype. Returns : A list of scalars. Args : purge_twigs Usage : $obj->purge_twig(); Function: Deletes the list of twigs associated with this term. Returns : A list of scalars. Args : each_parent Title : each_parent() Usage : @gs = $obj->each_parent(); Function: Returns a list of names of parents for this term Returns : A list of scalars.
