#' BANDITS_data class
#'
#' \code{BANDITS_data} contains all the information required to perform differential transcript usage (DTU).
#' \code{BANDITS_data} associates each gene (genes), to its transcript ids (transcripts),
#' effective transcript lengths (effLen), equivalence classes (classes) and respective counts (counts).
#' The same structure is also used for groups of genes with reads/fragments compatible with >1 gene (with uniqueId == FALSE); 
#' in this case the 'genes' field contains all the genes ids in the group.
#' Created via \code{\link{create_data}}.
#' 
#' @return
#' \itemize{
#' \item \code{show(object)}: returns the number of genes and transcripts in the \code{BANDITS_data} object.
#' }
#' 
#' @slot genes \code{list} of gene names: each element is a vector of 1 or 
#' more gene names indicating the genes to be analyzed together.
#' @slot transcripts \code{list} of transcript names: each element is a vector of 1 or
#'  more transcript names indicating the transcripts matching the gene names in the corresponding element of @genes object.
#' @slot effLen \code{list} of transcript effective lengths: each element is a vector of 1 or
#'  more numbers, indicating the effective length of the transcripts in the corresponding element of @transcripts object.
#' @slot classes \code{list} of matrices: the (i,j) element of each matrix is 1 if the i-th transcript
#' is present in the j-th equivalence class, 0 otherwise.
#' @slot counts \code{list} of matrices: the (i,j) element indicates the reads/fragments compatible with 
#' the i-th equivalence class in sample j.
#' @slot uniqueId \code{logical}, it indicates if the element contains one gene to be analyzed alone (TRUE),
#'  or more genes to be analyzed jointly (FALSE).
#' @slot all_genes \code{vector}, it lists all the genes to be analyzed (with at least 2 transcripts).
