Gene

A Schema.org Type

This term is proposed for full integration into Schema.org, pending implementation feedback and adoption from applications and websites.
A discrete unit of inheritance which affects one or more biological traits (Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gene). Examples include FOXP2 (Forkhead box protein P2), SCARNA21 (small Cajal body-specific RNA 21), A- (agouti genotype).

Properties from BioChemEntity
associatedDisease MedicalCondition  or
PropertyValue  or
URL
Disease associated to this BioChemEntity. Such 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 known to interact with this item.
bioChemSimilarity BioChemEntity A similar BioChemEntity, e.g., obtained by fingerprint similarity algorithms.
biologicalRole DefinedTerm A role played by the BioChemEntity within a biological context.
hasBioChemEntityPart BioChemEntity Indicates a BioChemEntity that (in some sense) has this BioChemEntity as a part.
Inverse property: isPartOfBioChemEntity
hasMolecularFunction DefinedTerm  or
PropertyValue  or
URL
Molecular function performed by this BioChemEntity; please use PropertyValue if you want to include any evidence.
hasRepresentation PropertyValue  or
Text  or
URL
A common representation such as a protein sequence or chemical structure for this entity. For images use schema.org/image.
isEncodedByBioChemEntity Gene Another BioChemEntity encoding by this one.
Inverse property: encodesBioChemEntity
isInvolvedInBiologicalProcess DefinedTerm  or
PropertyValue  or
URL
Biological process this BioChemEntity is involved in; please use PropertyValue if you want to include any evidence.
isLocatedInSubcellularLocation DefinedTerm  or
PropertyValue  or
URL
Subcellular location where this BioChemEntity is located; please use PropertyValue if you want to include any evidence.
isPartOfBioChemEntity BioChemEntity Indicates a BioChemEntity that is (in some sense) a part of this BioChemEntity.
Inverse property: hasBioChemEntityPart
taxonomicRange DefinedTerm  or
Taxon  or
Text  or
URL
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 description 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.
identifier PropertyValue  or
Text  or
URL
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.
image ImageObject  or
URL
An image of the item. This can be a URL or a fully described ImageObject.
mainEntityOfPage CreativeWork  or
URL
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.
subjectOf CreativeWork  or
Event
A CreativeWork or Event about this Thing.
Inverse property: about
url URL URL of the item.
