Request class "Mesoaxial fingers" #592
For this and #593 we have the following:
These were added as part of the ext project. I will modify in the following way which is consistent with the text def and intent: these will be made subclasses of the relevant digit class.
We also want digits2,3,4 to be a subclass of this in humans. We could do this using this pattern https://github.com/obophenotype/uberon/wiki/Evolutionary-variability-GCIs
But this is quite complex. What I suggest doing instead is adding distinct classes:
drseb would use these for defining the human phenotype classes.
These would be inferred to be subclass of "lateral" or "mesoaxial" in different species. We would also add taxon-specific syns to the newly added classes (lateral, mesoaxial)
Thus the new classes would be 'rigid' and the existing classes would remain fluid, with different digits in different taxa classifying under them.
