Please can we have a verification check for equivalent classes.
Background: I am in the process of integrating about 1500 cross-product terms created by curators into a version of our anatomy ontology. One common problem is that curators make terms for classes that already exist, or that equivalent terms are later created in the main ontology. I need a system for finding when this happens. A verification check that lists such redundant classes would be great.
Note Protege 4 already has a mechanism for this.
Here's an example:
A curator, presumably attempting to be overly precise created the term
thecogen cell that is part_of peripheral nervous system
but acoording to the ontology, all thecogen cells are.
So, this term is equivalent to thecogen cell.
Example, with OE and P4 screenshots is here:
