[bioontology-support] ADO (Alzheimer Disease Ontology) in BioPortal

We to resolve imports, both by following the URL and by loading from the 
local file. There are three imports in your ontology but none of them 
resolve to anything.

The easiest fix would be to make these URLs resolve.

An alternative is to submit the ontology, including imports, in a zip. To do 
this create a zip:

1)  Name of zip is exactly the name of the main ontology file (foo.owl ->

2)  At the top level of the zip include both the main ontology and all 

3)  Have no additional directories in the zip

Subject: [bioontology-support] ADO (Alzheimer Disease Ontology) in BioPortal

Dear BioPortal team,

my colleague has submitted the following ontology:

The ontology contains owl:imports, which don't seem to be resolved in the 
uploaded ontology version. So, my question is, does BioPortal resolve 
owl:import statements, and what do we have to do to make it work? Otherwise 
we might merge everything into one big file.

Would you please be so kind as to let us know?

Thank you very much!
