Clarification on comments re MessengerRNAIdentifier Definition
Return to BRIDG
CLOSED - Need clarification on comments re MessengerRNAIdentifier Definition (rows 34)
DEFINITION: The unique identification of a gene transcript in a specified context.
EXAMPLE(S): An identifier in ENSEMBL or RefSeq
assuming changing to a cDNA transcript (probably based on question 19, row 31)
DEFINITION: A unique symbol that establishes the identity of the transcript. Version numbers must be used, if available as part of the standard.
EXAMPLE(S): <SEE ANSWER TO QUESTION 20>
Pending Input From Submitter
Proposed Disposition Comment
Need clarification on the meaning of the comment. Note that referencing another class name directly or indirectly in the definition of the class you are defining is permitted by BRIDG conventions (i.e. using the term mRNA as a synonym for MessengerRNA - another class - is allowed) - is that why the suggested replacement of "mRNA" with "transcript"? Need to run this by the LSDAM SMEs for agreement but versioning comment makes sense.
- Does the definition of MessengerRNA need to change, and if so, to what?
- (Answer should clarify any reference to question 20.)
Lauren Becnel: mRNA is only produced from protein-coding genes. Not all genes are protein coding. The definition should be amended slightly to clarify.
Q from WENDY: How is the definition best amended to clarify the meaning?
DISCUSSION 20160225: Update definition to this - "A unique symbol that establishes the identity of the protein-coding transcript. Version numbers must be used, if available as part of the standard."
