[bioontology-support] Use of SNOMED CT in virtual appliance

I wanted to let you know that I just got the last step of the pipeline
working and have generated the SNOMED ttl. I'm now loading it in my VA and
will let you know if I have any issues.
Thanks again for your responsiveness to all of my questions!
