Aims of term development
This working group aims to develop SO terms to provide a better representation of repeat regions and mobile elements in the ontology. While the ontology contains many terms for the annotation of repeats and mobile elements, there is need for improvement.
- How to organize the ontology using terms with logical definitions and logical reasoner software.
- Define the relationship between repeats, replicons and mobile elements
- How to fully annotate nested repeats in a GFF3 annotation, in a way that will validate correctly.
