As per the Pathogen Transmission Ontology, a pathogen is transmitted from one host, reservoir, or source to another host. This transmission may occur either directly or indirectly and may involve animate vectors or inanimate vehicles. We (DO group) need a relation (transmitted_by) to capture valuable information about the transmission process of some pathogens which cause diseases in humans, like direct transmission(droplet spread, contact,congenital) or indirect transmission(airborne,vector-borne, vehicle-borne such as food, fomites).
Is there a relation that is already in RO that can be used for this purpose?
