  • Progress / status of data-type/tools documents
  • Next steps?


  • ?RO_term proposal sent to models@wormbase list
  • Some questions about the model:
  1. I currently have XREFs between tags in the ?RO_term class and the ?GO _annotation class. Will we eventually want XREFs between all classes that refer to an ?RO_term and the ?RO_term? Do we want/need to create these XREFs at all?
    1. I didn't actually add the tags for Ancestor and Descendant. I'm not clear on how these tag values would get used in the database and/or website and if they are really needed.
      1. All of the relations that will be used between genes and GO terms, i.e. the annotation relations, are present in RO, but all of the relations used in annotation extensions are not. Currently, the only annotation extension relation in the C. elegans annotation file that solely uses RO relations is Molecule_relation. In the ?GO_annotation model, I left the annotation extension relations as Text, but I could update the Molecule_relation to use an ?RO_term. It would be nice if all annotation extension relations eventually found their way into RO or were subsumed by an existing RO term, but I don't have a good sense right now of if and when that will happen.
