  • BiologicalSequence (String)
  • Boolean (Bool) - A binary (true or false) value
  • CategoryType (Uriorcurie) - A primitive type in which the value denotes a class within the biolink model. The value must be a URI or a CURIE. In a Neo4j representation, the value should be the CURIE for the biolink class, for example biolink:Gene. For an RDF representation, the value should be a URI such as
  • ChemicalFormulaValue (str) - A chemical formula
  • Date (XSDDate) - a date (year, month and day) in an idealized calendar
  • Datetime (XSDDateTime) - The combination of a date and time
  • Double (float) - A real number that conforms to the xsd:double specification
  • EdgeLabelType (Uriorcurie) - A CURIE from the biolink related_to hierarchy. For example, biolink:related_to, biolink:causes, biolink:treats.
  • Float (float) - A real number that conforms to the xsd:float specification
  • Frequency (String)
  • Integer (int) - An integer
  • IriType (Uriorcurie) - An IRI
  • LabelType (String) - A string that provides a human-readable name for a thing
  • NarrativeText (String) - A string that provides a human-readable description of something
  • Ncname (NCName) - Prefix part of CURIE
  • Nodeidentifier (NodeIdentifier) - A URI, CURIE or BNODE that represents a node in a model.
  • Objectidentifier (ElementIdentifier) - A URI or CURIE that represents an object in the model.
  • PercentageFrequencyValue (Double)
  • Quotient (Double)
  • String (str) - A character string
  • SymbolType (String)
  • Time (XSDTime) - A time object represents a (local) time of day, independent of any particular day
  • TimeType (Time)
  • Unit (String)
  • Uri (URI) - a complete URI
  • Uriorcurie (URIorCURIE) - a URI or a CURIE
