[bioontology-support] Annotator help request

Hi Joey,

I confirmed with Nigam that relations other than is_a are no longer  
returned from the closure. This change was implemented due to errors  
that occur when the closure was conflated with relations other than  
the is_a relations.  Since the closure was intended to only include  
is_a, can you expand on the need for including part_of?


PS - feel free to call if you prefer to discuss via phone
