This is a property of type Page.

This property is used to assign the different branches in which an entity can occur. In order to enforce the single asserted hierarchy rule, each entity, e.g., Cerebellum Purkinje cell, can only have a single parent (supercategory). So a Purkinje cell is only asserted to be a type of neuron. However, every entity can have many roles or functions within different contexts, so a Purkinje cell can be a cerebellar neuron or a GABAergic neuron or a projection neuron. All of these hierarchies are generated from the "has role" property.

For Resources, this property is used to assign resource types. This usage is not ideal and should be revisited.
