  3. 3. Termonology <ul><li>Taxon </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Refers to an organism identifier </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Names are controlled by external vocabularies such as NCBI </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Trait </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Some attribute of a set of organisms being studied </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Tree </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A graph specifying the inferred relationship between taxa in a study </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Matrix </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A matrix is defined as a set of taxa and traits and their associated states. </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. Basic Structure <ul><li>Network/Tree </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Specifies all classes related to defining cdao trees. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Includes notions of node and branch </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The actual relationship between nodes is specified in terms of properties such as child and parent </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Matrix </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Contains a set of traits and taxa. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Traits and taxa are connected to observed state data through the “has” property. </li></ul></ul>
