Wikidata:Property proposal/has positive marker
has positive markerEdit
Originally proposed at Wikidata:Property proposal/Natural science
Even though the concept of a marker gene/protein is not clear cut, it is very important, and widely used in databases and scientific articles.
This property will help us to represent that a gene/protein has been reported as a marker by a credible source, and should always contain a reference.
Some markers are reported as proteins and some as genes. Some genes don`t encode proteins, and some protein markers are actually protein complexes.
The property would be inclusive to these slightly different markers.
Some cell types are marked by absence of expression of genes/proteins/protein expression. As these seem to be less common than positive markers (no organized databases, for example) they are left outside the value range for this property. TiagoLubiana (talk) 14:39, 17 November 2020 (UTC)
