On this page:

Think we need to also mention annotating to cc - i.e. the 'host' 'host cell' etc terms. Need to point out that viruses should be treated like any other symbiont for this (i.e. annotate to 'host nucleus' rather than 'nucleus' and add the host taxon).

Also, the node is still referred to as IBO (interaction between organisms) throughout when it should be MOP (multi-organism process). Same on the annotation format page:

  • OK, have done this.

    Should there be some cellular component terms for the symbiont (other than the virus terms)?

    Oh yeah - there probably should be really - immune system proteins that act at the symbiont surface etc. I've just added a term 'other organism' to cc as parent to host, so it would go as another child under this. We'll be switching these terms for annotation relations at some stage in the future though, so won't add it unless someone asks for it before then...
