[bioontology-support] [bioportal-announce] BioPortal 3.9 Released

Unfortunately this is currently a generic problem in China. The Google app
engine site used by visualization software is blocked by the "Great
Firewall of China".

al-integration.bio-mixer.appspot.com

 

It isn't clear to my why the Google app engine site is blocked but it is.

 

We will eventually move the visualization software to run on the Stanford
servers and this should fix this problem. Until then though there is
little that you can do (other than petitioning your government!). Sorry.

Dear BioPortal support,

The Visualization of ontologies is not available due to time-out of the
URL bioportal-integration.bio-mixer.appspot.com.
I'm a user from China.

 

Best Regards,
Sincerely,
Lin Zhang

We are pleased to announce the release of BioPortal 3.9. The major new
features in this release are:

 

.         We have revised the search interface, both for specifying a
search and in the format of the returned results. The new "advanced
search" capability allows users to specify more clearly exactly what terms
they would like to find. This capability also allows us to choose better
(more commonly desired) defaults for the "basic search". The returned
search results are now grouped by ontology and the results are ranked so
that terms from "better"  ontologies are returned first. We also show
definitions for terms that have them. In general this response format was
inspired by the Google search response interface so we hope that it looks
familiar. We are specifically soliciting feedback from users on this
revision. Please send any comments to support at bioontology.org.  *

 

.         We include the first version of the BioMixer visualization
software (available through the "Visualize" links). This software replaces
the older FlexViz system. There are a number of technology improvements
(i.e. the removal of Flash technology) over the older system and the newer
system is more powerful as well (i.e. you can now navigate mappings from
the basic interface). More complete versions of BioMixer will be
introduced in subsequent releases. Please provide any feedback you can on
this new system. *

 

.         We have regenerated all automatically generated mappings in the
system. These include lexical mappings, UMLS CUI mappings, identical
identifier mappings, and OBO-xref mappings. We have also loaded mappings
between selected UMLS ontologies as specified in the UMLS database
(MRMAP).
