Table 3 A single trait can be assessed via multiple measurements

From: The Vertebrate Trait Ontology: a controlled vocabulary for the annotation of trait data across species

  Number of unprompted entries into a discrete space in an experimental apparatus CMO:0001041
  Number of periods of voluntary immobility CMO:0001045
Trait assessed: lymphocyte quantity, VT:0000717  
Measurements: CD4 cell to CD8 cell ratio CMO:0000598
  CD4 cell to R73 cell ratio CMO:0001121
  CD8 cell to R73 cell ratio CMO:0001122
  R73 cell to total mononuclear cell ratio CMO:0001120
  1. To demonstrate that these measurements are related, rather than being separate entities, the records are grouped in the PhenoMiner database using the VT term for the trait assessed.
