[bioontology-support] query on new ontology

Hi Usha,


Thank you for your inquiry. No permission is necessary to upload an ontology
to BioPortal and ontologies developed in OBO format are supported. With
respect to the cross talk with other ontologies, does this refer to mappings
between the developing cell line ontology and disease and CL ontologies? If
so, these mappings can be represented in BioPortal provided a file
containing the mappings.  As for the project description, that can be added
prior to uploading the ontology file.


Best regards,

We are in the process of developing a cell line ontology which we intend to
post in Bioportal.  In this regards we require some clarification. The
ontology will be in OBO format and will have cross talk with disease
ontology and partly with the CL ontology currently available in your portal.
The idea is to have minimum overlap in building the ontology.  


Kindly let us know if we need to get permission for this.  Once we update a
reasonable number of terms, we would send it for review and then proceed for
completing the project.


Also, please let us know if we could post the description of the project in
the portal now itself. We can upload the files in a few weeks time once we
are clear on the points mentioned above.
