Sorry for the delay in responding...

To answer your question on how to build Collections of relations,
all you need to do in order to add members to a Collection is declare:

add { Nigams_relations   hs:member    :binds_to_promoter }

That sets the relation : binds_to_promoter to be a member of the 
Collection "Nigams_relations"

Take a look at the chemistryCanvas.ad file in BioDash and look at the 
":sampleChemicalRelations" Collection definition...

The basic tutorial documentation fro Haystack can be found at: 

for developers :  http://haystack.lcs.mit.edu/developers/index.html

Hope this helps,
