[bioontology-support] [BioPortal] Feedback from Allyson Lister

Hi Allyson,

I've looked at both links you posted and I don't see a tree for Crop Ontology displayed on either site. BioPortal displays "Summay" and "Notes" links, as well as projects associated with this ontology. It does not feature the usual links to Classes, Properties and Mappings, displayed for non-summary-only ontologies.

I don't see any tree hierarchy on the BioSharing site either. Can you please clarify your question (a screenshot would be helpful).

We use the NCBO Tree widget on the<> website to display the trees for those ontologies referenced in BioSharing which are also present in BioPortal.

I've noticed that the tree widget still tries to display the hierarchy of terms even for those records which are summary only, e.g. the Crop Ontology (see for the BioSharing record and the widget behaviour, and for your record). Could the widget perhaps simply display a short sentence stating that the particular ontology in question is only present as a summary within BioPortal please?
