[Bioperl-l] Bio::Score of interest?

So you basically want to attach semantic information to a number, and  
type the number thereby?

If so, an ontology would be the more natural choice (and in the end  
more flexible one) for expressing this kind of information.

Have you looked at the concept of 'quantitation types', e.g. in MAGE  
(the XML [MGAE-ML] or the object model [MAGE-OM])?

There is no quantitation type ontology at a repository I know of. I  
have used my own ones in the past and they have been pretty useful.
