Description

It can be seen if entering an annotation value using Fahrenheit and then displaying it as Celcius. Easiest way to do this is to create an annotation type that has default unit=Celcius and then use this as an experimental factor in an experiment which has a raw bioassay that has a value given in Fahrenheit.

Some results:

32°F --> -14.2 °C (should be 0)
212°F --> 85.8 °C (should be 100)

It seems like the "offset" used in the conversion forumula is incorrect. Instead of '241.15' it should be '255.3722'.
