Querying for data objects

X.query form

Creates modified version of the DataObject subclass which is fit for using in queries. May do other additional things latter, but, principally, it overrides the identifier generation based on attributes.

Examples for querying for a Neuron object:


this can be important for when a class generates identifiers based on some number of properties, but a subclass doesn’t use the superclass identifier scheme (Cell and Neuron are an example). The query form allows to query from the superclass as you normally would to get subclass instances.
