*BioPortal account username:  *mclange

*Organizational goals:*
UC Davis is building an International Center for Food Informatics.
Developing a portal for ontologies around food, it's production,
processing, distribution, and consumption is a central goal.

*Reason for preferring the local installation:*

The NCBO Bioportal contains some relevant ontologies for describing health
effects of consumption of certain foods; similarly, the AgroPortal contains
some ontologies that describe how food is produced; however, there is
currently no single ontology server that is focused around food in all of
its dimensions--most specifically, we are building ontologies to describe
the ways in which processing affects food's molecular structure and
concomitant bioavailability of nutrients and bioactive components, as well
as sustainability issues related to food production, processing, and

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Kind Regards,
