Please have a look at:


showing a *real* example of using the ontology from within our Taverna
workflow system. It is looking quite promising, but I also found a few

I've started a little branch locally and changed rdfs:comment ->
rdfs:label and updated the properties according to our decisions on
tense and direction. I have however not updated the textual document.
Would you like me to proceed with this, or have you already started? I
guess I should join the Ontology call on Mondays. Could you help me
with the call details?
