Dear Scott and HCLS people

we have a new format for BioSamples database at the EBI which models 
these relationships more precisely as derived-from. I agree that has 
characteristic is rather weak modelling of this reln. Derived-from can 
be used to model e.g. DNAs derived from a cell line, a blood derived 
from a person etc. We will be using this in the BioSamples database and 
its derived format Sample-Tab. We have an extension of the Limpopo 
parser for SampleTab under test.

SampleTab docs here:

Contact Adam Faulconbridge faulcon@ebi.ac.uk and Tony Burdett 
tburdett@ebi.ac.uk for further information

regards

Helen
