Hi all,

If we are going to use a second context with aliases defined by Bioschemas profiles, would it not make sense for that second context be one provided by Bioschemas? If we have a Bioschemas context, that context will take care of define the aliases and collate the possible corresponding ontology terms. In this way we keep it simple for users and avoid multiple cases (camel and others), for minimum and recommended properties at least. A third party property would always be possible for optional properties, giving proority to any of those already coined in schema.org<http://schema.org/>

I love any idea that keeps things simple! If I understand correctly, this proposal would push the Bioschemas community to converge on choices for both terms and IRIs, but it would still allow for using different terms.

Yes, that would be the idea. I will work on a Bioschemas context for the protein case and will share when it is ready so we can have a better idea about how it would look and work.

Having a concrete example that we can compare with the others would be really helpful.
