Each metadata field, such as `hasDataType` in the request below, is followed by an object which indicates the type of value for each field, such as `integer`, `string`, or `enum`. If the type is given as `enum`, the object also contains a list of all possible values for the given metadata field. Additionally, note that under `_links`, there is a list of connections to other entities in the dataset. In the example below, these connections include `"hasAliquot"`, `"hasCase"`, `"hasSample"`, `"hasPortion"`, and `"hasAnalyte"`.
