[bioontology-support] slices of ontos

The only reason to use a slice is if you only want to see a particular 
subset of ontologies. For example, if you only care about UMLS ontologies 

is a slice that will limit what BioPortal shows to only those ontologies. 
Not a heavily used feature…

Subject: [bioontology-support] slices of ontos

 Hi all, I would like to understand more about the use of slices, 

>From :


An alternate entry point into BioPortal which has been configured to display 
and use a subset of the available ontologies. The slice is accessed via URL 
of the form http://<slice-name> . There is 
currently no way for an end user to create or configure slice. However, you 
may send a request to support at and request that a new slice 
be created for you.

Is there any example, also, wat are the advantages in having slices?
