Dear Bioschemas Community,

Thank you to everyone who has taken part in the review of the proposed changes to Bioschemas. In general there has been broad agreement to the idea of introducing 5 new types to schema.org<http://schema.org>. There are however still a few issues to resolve. To enable this, I have created a cleaned up version of the proposal. The previous version is still available with all the comments on it as a record of the discussion.

The cleaned up proposal can be found at the following link. Again, only comment access has been provided.

We need to reach a decision on the following cross-cutting questions. I have created GitHub issues to allow a vote to be taken on these.

Should BioChemEntity inherit from Intangible?
Please use the following issue to cast your vote.

Should we use rdfs:subPropertyOf to link to ontology terms?
Please use the following issue to cast your vote.

Finalising Properties

There are two properties that are still causing issues and the discussion in the previous document was not conclusive.

contains: we still need to understand what this relationship is being used for. I have attempted to refocus the discussion.

position: I have left the discussion in place for this property. However, I wonder if ‘positionInRepresentation’ would more accurately capture the desired usage.

As before, we are trying to wrap things up ahead of the Biohackathon. Please can I ask that we have these issues resolved by the end of Monday (I know this is not much time).

Best regards
