Guidelines for 'database cross references' and 'definition database cross references'
See Ontology_Editors_Daily_Workflow for creating branches and basic Protégé instructions.

We have two types of cross-references in the ontology: (1) Definition database cross-references and (2) General database cross-references.
Definition database cross-references
Definition database cross-references are citable references that have helped generate the term and term's definition. Includes
- PMIDs (ideally all terms should have a PMID, but we have many terms not having them yet)
- Rhea for enzymes*
Can also include (if nothing else is available)
- *Only relevant for MF terms.
- Definition database cross-references also need to be added as General database cross-references.
General database cross-references
General database cross-references are links to external resources.
See Ontology_Editors_Daily_Workflow for commit, push and merge instructions.
