Schema:

Define the domain of the study. For example, the domain could be astrophysics, functional genomics or earth science. Those domains can also have an ontology reference.


Bioschemas:

For example, in the life sciences we could have Functional Genomics: http://edamontology.org/topic_0085 Protemics: http://edamontology.org/topic_0121

Marginality: Recommended.
about Thing
