Short read technologies often produce a hierarchy of output files. The
content of the hierarchy varies. This class represents the root of the
file hierarchy. Specific classes (e.g.,
SolexaPath) represent different technologies.
Objects from the class are created by calls to the constructor:
character(1) object pointing to the
top-level directory of the experiment; see specific technology
classes for additional detail.
(optional) logical vector which, when
TRUE results in warnings if paths do not exist.
All paths must be fully-specified.
ExperimentPath has one slot, containing a fully
specified path to the corresponding directory (described above).
The slot is accessed with
signature(object = "ExperimentPath"): briefly
summarize the file paths of
signature(x = "ExperimentPath"): summarize
file paths of
