[bioontology-support] updating the Pathogen Transmission Ontology page

Hi Lynn,

Once created, ontology acronyms are unique / unmodifiable objects in BioPortal. The best we can do in these cases is to create a new ontology entry, move existing data under the new entry, and delete the old one.

Normally I’d ask if that’s a path you’d like us to proceed with, but I noticed that the TRANS acronym has already been claimed in BioPortal by the Nurse Transitional ontology.

Kind regards,

Thank you Jennifer,
  Can you change the BioPortal Purl to use TRANS as the acronym ?

I have updated the ontology.

Hi Lynn,

I added your account as an administrator for this ontology. If you log into BioPortal and refresh the browser window when you’re viewing the Pathogen Transmission Ontology summary page, you should see the edit link now.

Kind regards,

 I logged into the account, but am not seeing the Edit submission information.

For comparison, I check the Disease Ontology, and on this Summary page I do see the Edit links.

Can you add this ontology to my list of 'Submitted Ontologies' so that I can update the information.
