Relationship between qualitative parameter and data. An example dysmorphology parameter and the corresponding value options are shown. The central photo shows a mouse with a sparse distribution of coat hair. A portion of the MA ontology is shown on the left and a portion of PATO (Revision 1.118) is shown on the right (visualised used OBO-Edit ). The highlighted terms are used to define the coat hair distribution parameter and the resulting phenotype annotation, illustrating the relationship between the parameter quality and the phenotype quality.
