Definitions

An anatomical entity is a material entity that is part of a multicellular organism, and which is large enough so that it forms an identifiable structure in the organism. Specifically, it excludes granular parts of the organism, such as atoms, molecules, cells, which can be removed from the organism without affecting it. It is defined as the union of 'multi-tissue structure', 'body substance' and 'portion of tissue'

editor note

13-02-2009: Biomaterial branch: change of label and definition following discussions at the OBI winter meeting 2009. It was felt that 'macroscopic part of multicellular organism' introduce an impractical delineation. IMPORTANT NOTE: OBI 'anatomical entity' would essentially correspond to FMA 'material anatomical entity' rather than FMA 'physical anatomical entity'. OBI does not include 'immaterial anatomical entity' as it would clash with the parent class 'material entity' DOCUMENTATION NOTE: OBI anatomical entity granularity level excludes cell and biological molecules.

not super happy about liquids (blood, sperm), as they seem to be 'granular' somewhat, and not form a structure.

Biom call - January 2009 - Issues: parasites are not macroscopic part or organism. fetus is_a macroscopic part (but this is up for discussion)

10/20/09: This class and all subclasses are currently problematic. They should all be imported from other OBO foundry ontologies. (FMA / CARO / UBERON). Currently two problems exist: There is no cross species anatomy that covers all the entities we need. Secondly: there is not good boundary between anatomical entities and smaller parts in FMA. Currently we will use anatomical entities as if they are valid across species.

equivalent classes 'portion of tissue' or 'multi-tissue structure' or 'portion of organism substance' Superclasses material_entity part_of some organism
