Glossary Term Children
Definition In MGI, this term refers to terms in a hierarchical controlled vocabulary like ones containing Gene Ontology (GO) terms. A "child" of a term is a term any number of levels below it in the hierarchy that is a descendant of the term. For example, the GO term alcohol dehydrogenase [GO:0004022] is a child of the GO term enzyme [GO:0003824].
