[bioontology-support] [BioPortal] Feedback from Richard Scheuermann

Thanks for your question.

We can talk offline about the exact form of the change that would suit you—for example, it is straightforward to search for it on the ontologies page, but if it's important do so so from the main page also, we could add a checkbox to offer the option of including views in the search. Possibly another option would appeal more to you.

Because at the moment we are excruciatingly limited in our available development resources, we don't have anyone who can do this change. If you can identify a funding source, I believe we could use it to acquire additional resources for the time needed to make the change. Please contact me directly if this interests you.

Hi Richard,

Thank you for contacting us. The PCL ontology appears to be configured as a “View” of Cell Line ontology (CL) rather than a standalone ontology. A view usually means a “subset” of the main ontology. By design, views do not appear in the main ontology selector, although the terms from views are searchable via the main BioPortal search.

The Provisional Cell Ontology (<> ) does not appear to be discoverable from the Find an ontology search function on the BioPortal home page. Why is that?
