To represent the state of the database we need to start using HASH values or UUIDs. For phenotypes we should create these for phenotype columns within a dataset - i.e. the column one uses for mapping. @zsloan this is metadata and I suggest we use RDF so we can have a historic view of changes in datasets. A change can be described as table - mapped to RDF:

dataset -> hash -> date -> submitter

The hash can be computed over data that is streamed over the REST API - so people van validate client side (as a feature).

This mentions RDF - which I think

was involved in. I (fredm) have tagged them here, for their evaluation of the relevance of this issue to them.
