Table pub.mgd.gxd_specimen
Defines an In Situ Assay Specimen. A Specimen is described in terms of its genotype, sex, age and the methods used to prepare the sample. If multiple animals within one reference have identical genotypes and preparation procedures, then they can be collectively represented by a single Specimen object.

See GXD_Assay, GXD_EmbeddingMethod, GXD_FixationMethod, GXD_Genotype.
