"After talking with many folks in industry over the last several months, it

of the thing" with something akin to transitivity"

Note that, to some degree, this is already done in the Neurocommons
Knowledge Base / the Banff HCLS Knowledge Base demo.

See http://sw.neurocommons.org/2007/sciencecommons.owl
Property "has_peptide_sequence_described_by" -- "relates a protein's primary
structure to the sequence entry in a protein record that describes it"
