[bioontology-support] reg. bioportal webservices

Hi Sridevi,

We do have a Staging environment that we can test upload the file,  
however at the moment we are also in the process of pushing new code  
to this server so it may not be as accessible as usual. Would you mind  
sending me the file and I will coordinate with folks here to upload  
this to the Stage server?

Once the final file is generated, it can be uploaded to BioPortal as a  
"view" [1] or subset of the NCBI taxonomy and after processing the  
ontology file, within a few hours, it will be accessible for use via  
the widgets and Web services.
