[bioontology-support] MI update on Bioportal?

Hello Pablo & Vasundra,

BioPortal provides functionality that gives end users the ability to enter a URL that is checked on a nightly basis for new versions of their ontology. The MI ontology entry in BioPortal is currently configured to check the following URL nightly:

We got this URL from your OBO Foundry page.

One thing to note here is that we are currently serving the OWL version of your ontology. The GitHub URL you provided below references the OBO version of your ontology. Is the implication here that you’d rather we be serving the OBO version, and have our system configured to pull from GitHub?

Thanks for any clarification you can provide here.

Kind regards,

The issue is that the MI ontology in the OBOfoundry page<> is updated but the BioPortal version​<> in not synced yet to the current/newest version. Could you please update it?

BR, John

Dear Vasundra,

I have no idea how BioPortal gets updated, but our reference github repo
is up to date and shows the latest version of the CV in OLS:
Our OBOfoundry page also seems tobe up to date

We have never updated BioPortal manually and I am certainly not willing
to start now, so I assume they have some sort of procedure to do these
updates. Can you use an alternative source for theCV?
