By the way, while we're on the topic, there's another very useful  
ontology which we certainly want to have on our list of relevant  
ontologies.  It addresses some of the issues directly relevant to  
both Use Cases and the issue Don brought up at the start of this  
thread - "describing distributions or receptors on a cell, locations  
of various processes in a cell" - in this case, for neuronal synapses.

SynDB: a Synapse protein DataBase based on synapse ontology.

db=pubmed&cmd=Retrieve&dopt=AbstractPlus&list_uids=17098931&query_hl=1&i 
tool=pubmed_docsum

Again - as I mentioned before, we also want to review this issue with  
the BioRDF folks - e.g., confer with Kei on his sense of what  
relevant TBox structure is provided in the SenseLab resource - and we  
should definitely review this issue with Matthias.

Cheers,
Bill
