Hmmmm... what's the range of that predicate? It's a bit like the SIO "has attribute", where you need to be sure to explicitly type what's at the other end to do "useful" reasoning. We're just concluding a project where we use species-of-origin to restrict the choices the SHARE query resolver can make when it queries the SADI registry. (the query requires the discovery of a BLAST service, and it will chose the right one based on the species that the sequence is derived from...)

Similar problem? if so, let me know and I'll post the model we came-up with a few weeks ago... Maybe we can converge on a common solution?

Cheers all!

We had an interesting discussion with Jim McCusker about Linked Data /
RDF representations of MAGE-TAB and some issues, such as choices of
predicates to make describe a human sample.

how to encode "is a sample originating from human"
closest now is "has characteristic"

Jim showed us some linked data versions of MAGE-TAB containing
descriptions and data of studies. Very nice!

The minutes are here:
