Schema.org hierarchyThis is a new Type that fits into the schema.org hierarchy as follows:
Thing > BioChemEntity > BioSample
A biological material entity that is representative of a whole.
Comments: Typically samples are intended to be representative of the whole or aspects thereof. Examples of samples include biomedical samples (blood, urine) and plant specimens held at herbaria.

Key to specification table
- Green properties/types are proposed by Bioschemas, or indicate proposed changes by Bioschemas to Schema.org
- Red properties/types exist in the core of Schema.org
- Blue properties/types exist in the pending area of Schema.org
- Black properties/types are reused from external vocabularies/ontologies
|Properties from BioSample (pending schema.org integration).|
|additionalProperty||PropertyValue||A property-value pair representing an additional characteristics of the entitity, e.g. a product feature or another characteristic for which there is no matching property in schema.org.
Note: Publishers should be aware that applications designed to use specific schema.org properties (e.g. http://schema.org/width, http://schema.org/color, http://schema.org/gtin13, ...) will typically expect such data to be provided using those properties, rather than using the generic property/value mechanism.
|collector||Organization or Person||The Person or Organization who collected the Sample.|
|custodian||Organization or Person||The Person or Organization who is responsible for the Sample.|
|dateCreated||Date or DateTime||The date on which the CreativeWork was created or the item was added to a DataFeed.|
|gender||GenderType or Text||Gender of the person. While http://schema.org/Male and http://schema.org/Female may be used, text strings are also acceptable for people who do not identify as a binary gender|
|isControl||Boolean||Indicates whether the sample is being used as a normal control, may be in combination with another sample.|
|Current location of the item.|
|locationCreated||Place||The location where the CreativeWork was created, which may not be the same as the location depicted in the CreativeWork.|
|samplingAge||Integer||The age of the object when the Sample was created.|
|Properties from BioChemEntity (pending schema.org integration).|
|Disease associated to this BioChemEntity. Such a disease can be a MedicalCondition or a URL. If you want to add an evidence supporting the association, please use PropertyValue.|
|bioChemInteraction||BioChemEntity||A BioChemEntity that is know to interact with this item.|
|bioChemSimilarity||BioChemEntity||A similar molecular entity, e.g., obtained by fingerprint similarity algorithm.|
|biogicalRole||DefinedTerm||A role played by the molecular entity within a biological context.|
Indicates a BioChemEntity that (in some sense) has this BioChemEntity as a part.
Inverse property: isPartOfBioChemEntity
|Molecular function performed by this BioChemEntity; please use PropertyValue if you want to include any evidence.|
|A common representation such as a protein sequence or chemical structure for this entity. For images use schema.org/image.|
Another BioChemEntity encoding this one.
Inverse property: encodesBioChemEntity.
|Biological process this BioChemEntity is involved in; please use PropertyValue if you want to include any evidence.|
|Subcellular location where this BioChemEntity is located; please use PropertyValue if you want to include any evidence.|
Indicates a BioChemEntity that is (in some sense) a part of this BioChemEntity.
Inverse property: hasBioChemEntityPart
|The taxonomic grouping of the organism that expresses, encodes, or in someway related to the BioChemEntity.|
|Properties from Thing|
|additionalType||URL||An additional type for the item, typically used for adding more specific types from external vocabularies in microdata syntax. This is a relationship between something and a class that the thing is in. In RDFa syntax, it is better to use the native RDFa syntax - the 'typeof' attribute - for multiple types. Schema.org tools may have only weaker understanding of extra types, in particular those defined externally.|
|alternateName||Text||An alias for the item.|
|description||Text||A descripton of the item.|
|disambiguatingDescription||Text||A sub property of description. A short description of the item used to disambiguate from other, similar items. Information from other properties (in particular, name) may be necessary for the description to be useful for disambiguation.|
|The identifier property represents any kind of identifier for any kind of Thing, such as ISBNs, GTIN codes, UUIDs etc. Schema.org provides dedicated properties for representing many of these, either as textual strings or as URL (URI) links. See background notes for more details.|
|An image of the item. This can be a URL or a fully described ImageObject.|
Indicates a page (or other CreativeWork) for which this thing is the main entity being described. See
background notes for details.
Inverse property: mainEntity
|name||Text||The name of the item.|
|potentialAction||Action||Indicates a potential Action, which describes an idealized action in which this thing would play an 'object' role.|
|sameAs||URL||URL of a reference Web page that unambiguously indicates the item's identity. E.g. the URL of the item's Wikipedia page, Wikidata entry, or official website.|
A CreativeWork or Event about this Thing..
Inverse property: about.
|url||URL||URL of the item.|
