[VK] Yes, but they do need to belong as "properties" of a generic evidence class
as pointed out by Daniel Rubin, at least that's how it's used in certain
clinical contexts.

[VK] I would proposed that "genomic analysis" itself is an inference

Input = Genomic data
Inference Procedure = Genomic Analysis (in this case, it's a statistical
inference procedure)
Output = Some Genomic Hypotheses.

It would be great if we can figure out a way to create an approach for dealing
with evidences across HC and LS Contexts...
