The Portal’s data model is simple. Its primary objects are treatments, associated resources (e.g. specimens, images), and annotations. The treatments comprise metadata; character descriptions; opinion; and references. Annotations use the dataSelector class to specify the aspects of a treatment or resource record that are being annotated.

Treatment :=  metadata; {description}; character traits; opinion; references

Associated resource := specimen|image|sequence data|tree|map|paper|annotation
Annotation := a Filtered Push annotation, commenting on an aspect of either a treatment or an associated resource via constructs of an ontology such as AOD or OA
