The SIAMCAT class

## Details

The S4 SIAMCAT class stores the results from the SIAMCAT workflow in different slots. The different slots will be filled by different functions (referenced in the description below).

In order to contruct a SIAMCAT class object, please refer to the documentation of the construction function siamcat.

The SIAMCAT class is based on the phyloseq-class. Therefore, you can easily import a phyloseq object into SIAMCAT.
