    3 The BatchDataImporter plugin imports a batch of individual data files into an experiment chosen by the user. It is set up to be invoked from the detail view of a single Experiment where an import tab lets the user select a zip file that contains all the data files. On invocation it proceeds to create a new subdirectory in the user's raw data directory -- this subdirectory is named after the zip file minus the extension plus a timestamp in the format ddMMyy_hhmmss. The zip file is unzipped into this directory. For each file in the directory, a single RawBioAssay object is then created, and once all the data files have been processed in this way, the RawBioAssay objects just created are attached to the Experiment where the import is run from.
