Ticket #191 (assigned enhancement)
Include searchable Xrefs in Ontology terms (bv CAS for CHEBI)
|Reported by:||e.vansomeren@…||Owned by:||business@…|
CAS nr are a commonly used ID for compounds. So when looking for a compound, the user should be able to fill in CAS nr as well, rather than only names or synonyms which is currently the case. In CHEBI.obo I found that CAS nr are connected to compounds as an Xref field.
So, in general, this could be fixed by simply including Xrefs when searching for any ontology term.
