[bioontology-support] [BioPortal] Feedback from Peter Karp

Hello Peter,

Thank you for your question, you are correct that this *should* be straightforward. The reason you are not finding it with your searches is that BioPortal's search function only searches for classes, and RO_0002327 is an ObjectProperty (details below). BioPortal doesn't provide a search capability for properties, an omission we hope to fix with our next award.

I had to navigate the tree to find it, but can't give you a link directly to the term, I'm sorry.

These improvements have been added to ticket, feel free to review or comment on that ticket.

Hi, I'm trying to find term RO:0002327 in the Relations Ontology using BioPortal.
This would seem straightforward, but when I go to your home page and enter RO:0002327 in the Search field, the results do not include this term in the top results.
