Dear Ray Fergerson,
                    As suggested by you we have followed the route two (including imports, in a zip) to remove parsing problem existing with our Alzheimer's disease ontology: 

A new version have been submitted to Bioportal, also find it attached to the email in case you want to have a look.

Thanks for your suggestions! We hope that the existing issue will be resolved soon.

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 imports 

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!
