Ontology Issues to be worked on:

Order of Top Priority sections

***Note: content below needs to be updated***

anatomy and morphology traits

  • Continue to restructure terms to follow hierarchy of PO
    • Need work:
      • Fruit anatomy and morphology trait- see comments on tracker, modify synonymns- I think this is done, no?
      • in vitro plant structure anatomy and morphology trait - no child terms exist
      • plant cell anatomy and morphology trait - several development traits exist under this category
      • plant embryo anatomy and morphology trait - need to work on definitions of child terms (structure is alright)
      • portion of plant tissue anatomy and morphology trait - The vascular tissue traits need some work. There is a part_of relation between seed coat color and plant structure anatomy and morphology trait, should this be there?


stress trait

  • The two upper level terms here are good
    • abiotic stress trait
      • Proposed hierarchy:
        • environmental stress trait
          • temperature stress response trait
          • water stress response trait
          • radiation stress response trait
          • chemical stress response trait
        • agricultural practice stress response trait
    • biotic stress trait - these traits have a good structure


biochemical trait

  • has some upper level terms that are very good, others just need to become children of the terms that already exist
    • terms to keep:
      • biological process related trait
      • enzymatic activity and protein content related trait (maybe this could be 2 separate traits)
      • metabolite content related trait
      • mineral and ion content related trait


growth and development

  • waiting to start the hierarchy until the PO has finished restructuring their growth and development traits
  • current PO hierarchy:
    • collective plant structure development trait
    • plant organ development stage
    • plant tissue development stage
    • seed development stage
    • trichome development stage
    • whole plant development stage
  • currently in TO there is no upper level structure for this category


yield trait

  • should all these terms fall under biomass yield trait?
  • e.g. grain yield, harvest index, inflorescence yield, ethanol yield from biomass...all can be children of biomass yield trait.


stature and vigor/quality traits

  • could these two categories be combine?


fertility and sterility traits

  • could we incorporate these to stature and vigor/quality or growth and development?
  • There only about 4 traits under this category


other misc traits

  • this trait should be obsoleted
  • no terms exist under this category

Duplicated terms:

stem senescence

  • stem senescence (TO:0001036) def: "A measurement of aging of stem."

is_a: TO:0000361 ! stem anatomy and morphology trait

and

  • stem senescence (TO:0020085) def: "A trait to measure the stem senescence."

is_a: TO:0000654 ! shoot development trait


Same problem as before:

total water soluble content

  • total water soluble content (TO:0002711): def: "The concentration of water soluble components in the plant as determined by refractive index."

is_a: TO:0000281 ! metabolite content related trait

and

  • total water soluble content (TO:0020088): def: "A trait to measure the concentration of water soluble components in the plant as determined by refractive index."

comment: This trait is usually highly correlated with total soluble sugar content (TO:0000340). Often determined in fresh tissue. synonym: "total dissolved solids content" EXACT [] is_a: TO:0000281 ! metabolite content related trait

  • inflorescence width (TO:0000637)
  • inflorescence width (TO:0000804): An inflorescence anatomy and morphology trait (TO:0000373) which is associated with the width of an inflorescence (PO:0009049).


  • check definition of: TO:0020085

the term name itself should never be used (except some particular cases) to define a concept...

plant organ anatomy and morphology trait (TO:0000736) and subclasses:

leaf anatomy and morphology trait (TO:0000748)

Proposed to create two subcategories for leaf a&m trait

  • vascular leaf anatomy and morphology trait (TO:0000419): A leaf anatomy and morphology trait (TO:0000748) which is associated with a vascular leaf (PO:0009025).
  • non-vascular leaf anatomy and morphology trait (TO:0000925): A leaf anatomy and morphology trait (TO:0000748) which is associated with a non-vascular leaf (PO:0025075).

We should also keep general leaf a&m traits such as leaf size to encompass both vascular and non-vascular leaves.

Need to add comment to all general leaf terms: If you are annotating to this term, please add an additional annotation to vascular leaf anatomy and morphology (TO:0000419) or non-vascular leaf anatomy and morphology trait (TO:0000925), depending on the species.

specific leaf area

Request from SF: Specific leaf area

  • definition: leaf area measured in ratio to leaf dry mass.
  • synonym: leaf specific area
  • might need addition of 'leaf dry mass' as new trait.


Existing terms:

  • name: specific leaf area (TO:0000562) -is_a: TO:0000540 ! leaf area

Proposed definition: A leaf area (TO:0000540) trait that is the ratio of the leaf area (TO:0000540) to the leaf dry weight (TO:0001014)

Or "A leaf area trait (TO:0000540) that is the ratio of the leaf area (TO:0000540) to the leaf dry mass (TO:New)

Or use both: A leaf area trait (TO:0000540) that is the ratio of the leaf area (TO:0000540) to the leaf dry weight (TO:0001014) or leaf dry mass (TO:New).

SLA at Mgdb

  • leaf weight (TO:0000505) def: "A leaf anatomy and morphology trait (TO:0000505) which is associated with the measure of leaf weight."
    • leaf wet weight id: TO:0000891 def: "A leaf weight trait (TO:0000505) which is associated with the measure of the wet weight of a leaf (PO:0025034)." [PO:0025034, TO:moorel]
    • leaf dry weight id: TO:0001014 def: "A leaf weight trait (TO:0000505) which is associated with the measure of the dry weight of a leaf (PO:0025034)." [GR:pj, PO:0025034, TO:moorel]

Need to add references to PATO weight in these.

  • mass (PATO:0000125): A physical quality that inheres in a bearer by virtue of the proportion of the bearer's amount of matter.
  • weight (PATO:0000128): A physical quality inhering in a bearer that has mass near a gravitational body.

shoot system anatomy and morphology trait (TO:0000077)

  • TO:0020077 : head drop
  • TO:0000623 : involucre bristle length

Other anatomy and morphology trait classes:

cell organelle structure trait (TO:0002713)

Need to resolve whether this is an anatomy and morphology related trait (TO:0000017) or a growth and development trait (TO:0000357).

current def'n: Trait(s) associated with phenotypes observed for abnormal development of organelle structure and biogenesis.

  • plastid development trait

vascular tissue related trait

new term plant aspect (TO:0000737)

Should this go under stature or vigor trait (TO:0000133)? - refers to a whole plant

whole plant trait TO:0000398

has been obsoleted, maybe we should consider bringing back?

Other top level classes:

growth and development trait

growth and development trait (TO:0000357): Traits associated with observing effects on the development of the plant or plant parts.
