Input file format

Input files for usage example

Database entry: edam:alignment

[Term]
id: EDAM_topic:0083
name: Alignment
namespace: topic
def: Topic concerning the alignment (equivalence between sites) of molecular sequences, structures or profiles (representing a sequence or structure alignment).
subset: topics
is_obsolete: true ! {since=beta12orEarlier}
consider: EDAM_topic:0182 ! Sequence alignment
consider: EDAM_topic:0183 ! Structure alignment
consider: EDAM_topic:0184 ! Threading

[Term]
id: EDAM_data:1916
name: Alignment
namespace: data
def: An alignment of molecular sequences, structures or profiles derived from them.
subset: data
is_a: EDAM_data:3031 ! Core data

Output file format

The default behaviour is to report the entire OBO term statement from the ontology. Optionally, then only the the term id, name and namespace, or just the term id will be reported.

The output file by default is in OBO plain text format as used by the ontologies in the EMBOSS data directory and explained at http://www.geneontology.org/GO.format.obo-1_2.shtml.

Optionally, the output can be in HTML, OBO-XML or JSON format.

Output files for usage example

File: 0083.obo

[Term]
id: EDAM_topic:0083
name: Alignment
namespace: topic
def: Topic concerning the alignment (equivalence between sites) of molecular sequences, structures or profiles (representing a sequence or structure alignment).
subset: topics
is_obsolete: true ! {since=beta12orEarlier}
consider: EDAM_topic:0182 ! Sequence alignment
consider: EDAM_topic:0183 ! Structure alignment
consider: EDAM_topic:0184 ! Threading

Data files

OBO-format ontologies must be installed in the EMBOSS data directory and indexed. This is done automatically for typical installations.
