  • is_a: NamedThing - a databased entity or concept/class


  • BiologicalProcessOrActivity - Either an individual molecular activity, or a collection of causally connected molecular activities
  • DiseaseOrPhenotypicFeature - Either one of a disease or an individual phenotypic feature. Some knowledge resources such as Monarch treat these as distinct, others such as MESH conflate.
  • ExposureEvent - A feature of the environment of an organism that influences one or more phenotypic features of that organism, potentially mediated by genes
  • MolecularEntity - A gene, gene product, small molecule or macromolecule (including protein complex)
  • OrganismalEntity - A named entity that is either a part of an organism, a whole organism, population or clade of organisms, excluding molecular entities
