Welcome to the SO term rationale

This term rationale is provided to explain the reasoning of design decisions made when creating the Sequence Ontology.

The main division within the Sequence Ontology is between terms that describe an extent of sequence, called located_sequence_features, and those terms that describe a quality of a feature, called sequence_attributes. There are several SO_relationships used in SO to relate the terms.
