Registry Ontology for genetic interval

OGI formalized the genomic element by defining an upper class 'genetic interval'. The definition of 'genetic interval' is "the spatial continuous physical entity which contains ordered genomic sets(DNA, RNA, Allele, Marker,etc.) between and including two points (Nucleic Acid Base Residue) on a chromosome or RNA molecule which must have a liner primary sequence sturcture."
