Features should be able to know what their Reporter is

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