Template:ChadoTable feature relationship
- The module page for the module the table is a part of. This is where updates and comments should be posted.
- The Chado Tables page, which lists all tables.
You can include this template anywhere you want to show the table description.
Features can be arranged in graphs, e.g. "exon part_of transcript part_of gene"; If type is thought of as a verb, the each arc or edge makes a statement [Subject Verb Object]. The object can also be thought of as parent (containing feature), and subject as child (contained feature or subfeature). We include the relationship rank/order, because even though most of the time we can order things implicitly by sequence coordinates, we can not always do this - e.g. transpliced genes. It is also useful for quickly getting implicit introns.

The subject of the subj-predicate-obj sentence. This is typically the subfeature.
The object of the subj-predicate-obj sentence. This is typically the container feature.
Relationship type between subject and object. This is a cvterm, typically from the OBO relationship ontology, although other relationship types are allowed. The most common relationship type is OBO_REL:part_of. Valid relationship types are constrained by the Sequence Ontology.

The ordering of subject features with respect to the object feature may be important (for example, exon ordering on a transcript - not always derivable if you take trans spliced genes into consideration). Rank is used to order these; starts from zero.
