[bioontology-support] Annotator - Specifying Ontology Version

Clement is correct. Your only option would be to install your own instance of BioPortal locally (using the BioPortal Virtual Appliance), put the version of GO into it that you want to use, and perform the annotations with that BioPortal installation.

Recent and ongoing changes to the VIrtual Appliance should make it easier to install, so this may be a viable option for you.

To my knowledge, no.
Only the latest version of the BioPortal ontologies are parsed and dump into the Annotator dictionary.

Objet : [bioontology-support] Annotator - Specifying Ontology Version

I am a research assistant at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. I am using the NCBO Bioportal Annotator via the REST API to create annotations. I am specifically using it to create GO annotations. I noticed in the ontologies directory there are different versions for the GO ontology. I am wanting to use an archived version of the GO. Is there a way that I can specify which version of the GO to use for the annotator?
