Phenopacket building blocks

The phenopacket standard consists of several protobuf messages each of which contains information about a certain topic such as phenotype, variant, pedigree, and so on. One message can contain other messages, which allows a rich representation of data. For instance, the Phenopacket message contains messages of type Individual, PhenotypicFeature, Biosample, and so on. Individual messages can therefore be regarded as building blocks that are combined to create larger structures. It would also be straightforward to include the Phenopackets schema into larger schema for particular use cases. Follow the links to read more information about individual building blocks.
