I just added a few new methods to the dagflat parser (for parsing dag-edit
files). The previous code had hardcoded the relationship types that were
to be allowed (is_a, part_of, and a couple others). I was trying to parse
the cel ontology last night though, and couldn't because it had different
So... I have added two new methods to SimpleGOEngine to accomodate this:
add_relationship_type( $type_name, $ontology)
- adds new relationship types that don't already exist in the
ontology. creates Bio::Ontology::RelationshipTypeI objects.
returns 1 on successful creation, undef on failure.
- returns the previously created Bio::Ontology::RelationshipTypeI
object, or undef if there isn't one.
See the POD for full documentation.
