[bioontology-support] Issues with searches

Hello Bioportal Team,

I have noticed that searching for "design" in both the BioPortal interface
and the REST API, the terms from the OBI ontology are not retrieved.

http://bioportal.bioontology.org/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&query=design&commit=Search

http://data.bioontology.org/search?q=design

While they do show when searching OBI specifically:

http://bioportal.bioontology.org/ontologies/OBI?p=classes&conceptid=root

Having experienced the same issue reported recently about NCBITaxon:homo
sapiens, I noticed that searching for "sapiens" retrieves "homo sapiens' as
well as "macrobiotus sapiens" in both the API and the interface. But when
searching in NCBITaxon directly, it retrieves more terms (e.g. Homo
sapiens/Mus musculus xenograft -->
http://purl.bioontology.org/ontology/NCBITAXON/1383439).

Given that in the API the default is for the query not to be exact_match,
shouldn't all the terms be retrieved?

Many thanks,

Alejandra
