[bioontology-support] [BioPortal] Feedback from Daniel Lyman

Problem: I am having difficulty getting the BioPortal Annotator at to work on my computer (Internet Explore).

Details: When I add a list of terms to the input field, select SNOMED CT (as the target terminology) and click Annotate, I get a “No annotations found” message in the results table, even though the input terms are known matches (by independent methods, including the BioPortal Loom engine) to SNOMED CT terms. In addition, another message in the result table says “total results [some number, n]”. This same result occurs using SNOMED CT terms as input against the SNOMED CT terminology and a similar result occurs using input terms that are known matches (by independent methods) to other ontologies, such as NCIt (i.e., NCIt terms x NCIt). More oddly still, when a colleague runs the same tests on another computer, the Annotator works: SNOMED CT terms match the SNOMED CT terminology, NCIt terms match the NCIt.

Please advise.
Thanks in advance for your help.
