Esteemed and revered members of the SBO team,
While annotating a epidemiological model I had problems finding an appropriate term for the fraction of infected, vaccinated, resistant and so on individuals in a population. Could this be included somewhere under:
SBO:0000360 - quantity of an entity pool
I would suggest addition of something like (with a better name):
individual fraction of an entity pool : The ratio of a the number of molecules, particles or individuals of an entity to some overall number of molecules, particles or individuals.
and as a child mole fraction of an entity: ratio of the amount of moles of an entity to the total amount of moles in a system
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mole_fraction
Numerically they should be quite the same.
Maybe this and the mass fraction could go under a fraction branch in which every amount of an entity relative to an overall amount could reside.
Best wishes
Lukas

    created 'fraction of an entity pool', moved mass fraction, added mole fraction. structure now looks like this:
    quantity of an entity pool (SBO:0000360)
    fraction of an entity pool *new - SBO:0000540*
    mole fraction of an entity pool *new - SBO:0000541*
    mass fraction of an entity pool (SBO:0000470)

    Hope thats good for you - thanks for the submission!
