[bioontology-support] NCBO Annotator Excel plug-in

The release today allows you to specify that you want the preferred name
for every annotated class. Try this tomorrow.

Subject: Re: [bioontology-support] NCBO Annotator Excel plug-in

This email skipped under my radar, apologies.

The current version still uses the old version of the annotator. As it
stands, without the update to the annotator to include the term name in
the response, it’s currently not usable (too slow to then search for each
term, it’s preferred name). e.g.
+and+the+eye>  - from the results here, there is no way of knowing what
the actual term is - we have to do an additional query per term to figure
that out - that’s way too many queries to have to do and would make the
service unusable.

Is there any chance this can be updated ASAP? We’re in the process of
releasing OntoMaton 2, which uses the new bioportal services, but we
haven’t updated the annotator service as of yet, until this fix is made.

Best wishes,

Thanks Trish for this response.

Hi Eamonn,

Do you confirm the Ontomaton tool is still available and use the new NCBO
Annotator API (i.e., the one in BP 4.0) described at:

Hi Clement,

As I recall, the Excel plugin for the Annotator was no longer being
maintained. However, you might be interested to check-out OntoMaton [1],
which is an Excel GoogleDoc script that incorporates the BioPortal Search
and Annotator services.

Hi all,

We used to have an Excel plugin for the Annotator.

Does anyone have updates on this ?

Is it still available ?

Is it compatible with Annotator 2 ?
