[bioontology-support] OVF File

Hello Taher,

I apologize for my earlier response regarding the OVF file.  I don’t normally deal with anything related to the Virtual Appliance and was unaware that an OVF file is part of the standard download.  So, yes - we can provide you access to the Virtual Appliance.  Please look for an email from John Graybeal with further instructions.

In answer to your second question, I’m not aware of any way to do annotations locally outside of installing the Virtual Appliance.

Dear Jennifer,

I was looking for a way to have NCBO annotator offline and local in my machine, for faster execution. I saw in the webpage that we can have virtual appliances. Is there any other way of having the annotator working offline, without the need for sending requests to bust http servers?

Thank you,

Hello Taher,

Sorry - I’m not sure what you are referring to when you say the “OVF file”?  I searched for an ontology with this acronym both in the BioPortal user interface, and via our REST API, but I’m not finding anything.

Are you looking for a particular ontology?
