[bioontology-support] [BioPortal] Feedback from Baker

If MIMS is provided as a conformant ontology (e.g., Protege can open it without errors), and you have permission, then it should be entirely possible for you to upload it without difficulty to BioPortal, and upgrade it whenever you want.

If the ontology is available on the web as a download, you can enter the download location into BioPortal, and it will monitor the location nightly for any changes, automatically uploading a new submission whenever a change is detected.

I am at a conference with a number of Australian counterparts, I may be able to learn more about MIMS from them as well.

Hi John,

Thank you very much for the response and my apologies for late reply to you.

We appreciate your willingness to lead the process yourself.

Still we currently in the process of finding ontology data provider for Australian standards.

Do you have any idea whether we can upload Ontology list (ex: MIMS under their approval) in to Bioportal as one go and we can review the list timely based say once every quarter and re-upload the list?

I’ll let you know the outcome.
