GENE11 — Features should be able to know what their Reporter is

  • Key: GENE11-3
  • Legacy Issue Number: 5929
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Rosetta Biosoftware Business Unit ( Michael Miller)
  • Summary:

    Features should be able to know what their Reporter is. The model
    currently has no way to navigate from a Feature to its Reporter

    Raise by Michael Dondrup 10/2/02

    "Given a particular Feature (eg. by selecting a spot on a image of an
    array), try to retrieve data for the BioSequence via its Reporter. I
    would suggest a direct association from Feature to Reporter. Or is this
    only adding redundancy to the model?'

    Reply from Paul Spellman 10/4/02

    "there is a very good reason for this association not to exist.
    Features are immutable and confined to a single array, Reporters are
    flexible and can be present on multiple arrays. Requiring Features to
    know which Reporters they are in could in some cases be a logistical
    nightmare.

    This is best solved using a database query rather than the model."
