hi Carlos,

It does not seem to be much about investigations or studies except for 
Olga Giraldo is working on a schema for Lab Protocols which are 
experiments. Experiments can be part of studies, studies can be part of 
investigations. Or you can just see an investigation as an study (as I 
understand was Rodrigo's proposal).

I would suggest you to talk about it with Olga, maybe you can come up 
with something in that regard. Please keep me in the loop, I would like 
to participate in that too if we see that it fits and it works for 

@Alasdair, Rafael, Carole. If we decide to model these 
investigations/studies required by phenotypes, we might need an 
extension to deliver the specification as it would be something new. 
Also, Lab Protocols have reagents which are chemicals which, at the 
moment, fit into Biological Entity. I am not sure we are covering all 
the reagent needs from a Lab Protocol perspective so Biological Entity 
is likely to change. I know this is not ideal with the deadline on the 
30th coming, but we just had a meeting with Olga to help her moving her 
specification to Bioschemas templates.
