[bioontology-support] Extended GO file

Hi Jane,
I was investigating how the intersection_of gets represented on the
Ontology Lookup service to see if there were other ways of representing
the information.
I found the sequence ontology (SO) also has intersection_of used within
the ontology. The term SO:0000034 has an intersection_of defined for it.
It looks like this in the OBO file:

id: SO:0000034
name: morpholino_oligo
def: "Morpholino oligos are synthesized from four different Morpholino
subunits, each of which contains one of the four genetic bases (A, C, G,
T) linked to a 6-membered morpholine ring. Eighteen to 25 subunits of
these four subunit types are joined in a specific order by non-ionic
phosphorodiamidate intersubunit linkages to give a Morpholino."
synonym: "morpholino oligo" EXACT []
is_a: SO:0001247 ! implied link automatically realized ! synthetic_oligo
intersection_of: SO:0001247 ! synthetic_oligo
intersection_of: has_quality SO:0001183 ! Morpholino

The visualization is

Would it be fine if we represented the information in a similar fashion
We would define the relations
SO:0000034 is_a SO:0001247
SO:0000034 has_quality SO:0001183

Hi Trish and Pradip -

The term details panel looks fine.

For the visualization, I would only ever show the asserted links (in 
this example the isa and regulates links) rather than the intersection 
links, if that makes sense. So in the fact the visualization you have it
