[bioontology-support] [BioPortal] Feedback from Fred Trotter

Hi Fred,

I’m not sure I understand what you’re asking. I navigated to the CMT release page to read about these release files: In particular, I downloaded the Vascular Procedures List, which is described as a “collection of concepts” from Kaiser Permanente’s electronic medical record system. The concepts are stored in Excel format. BioPortal is able to handle ontology submissions in OWL, OBO, and/or SKOS. Were you asking us to convert the spread sheet content to one of these formats?

I also looked at the vocabulary documentation for the latest UMLS Metathesaurus release: It doesn’t appear that they offer CMT as a distinct vocabulary.

Wondering if you might be able to offer a little more detail on what you’d like to see in BioPortal?

Kind regards,

any chance you could import and link the Convergent Medical Terminology (CMT) Release Files from Snowmed CT as an ontology?

They are not often updated but it is useful to have mappings to everyday languages..

Thanks for the amazing app.
