Base class for objects that can be written to and read from Bam files.
See also TypedObject for detailed instructions.
Converts the TypedWritable object into a single stream of data using a BamWriter, and returns that data as a string string.
Returns empty string on failure.
This is a convenience method particularly useful for cases when you are only serializing a single object. If you have many objects to process, it is more efficient to use the same BamWriter to serialize all of them together.
