Update on SVM pipeline
Clarifying definitions of "defective" and "deficient" for phenotypes
- WB phenotype ontology has many "variant/abnormal" terms and distinct subclass terms for "defective/deficient"
- Have tried to create a logical definition pattern for these terms, but the vagueness of the meaning of "defective" and how it is distinct from "abnormal" has stalled the process
- What do we mean exactly by "defective" and how, specifically, is this distinct from "abnormal"?
