[bioontology-support] A question please

Hello Dr. El-Sappagh,

The DTO acronym is already taken in BioPortal by the Drug Target Ontology.  You were not able to see this ontology because the owner set the viewing restriction to private.  Apologies, but you’ll need to choose a different acronym for your diabetes ontology.

On another note, it’s helpful if you post your questions to our support list (support at<>) instead of to me privately so that all members of our staff have access and the opportunity to help.

Kind regards,

Dear Professor Jennifer,
I hope you are fine. Please, I have a question regarding the uploading of my new ontology. I have created an ontology for diabetes treatment. Its name is Diabetes Treatment Ontology (DTO). It extends our previous DDO ontology ( I tried to upload it with the name DTO, but the portal replied that this name already exist. Actually, I might be tried to do this before, but I did not continue. I searched for any existing ontology with this name (, but nothing returned.
Please I need to upload my ontology with this preferred name (DTO). How can I do that?

Thanks in advance.
Best Regards.
