- All Known Implementing Classes:
public interface OntologyTerm extends TermA term in an ontology which identifies another ontology.
This Term type has an associated ontology. It is meant to represent that ontology so that you can reason over them. For example, you could add information to an Ontology containing an OntologyTerm stating how the OntologyTerm's Ontology relates to other entities. This allows classifications of Ontologies to be built. You could say that GO is a biological ontology, as is SO or perhaps declare something about the source of the information.
