[bioontology-support] [BioPortal] Feedback from satyasahoo

Hello Dr. Sahoo,

Thank you for your patience with this problem.  We have fixed the ontology and it is now correctly visible in BioPortal.

Details about the problem can be found in the ticket In brief, the customized default property setting fields are meant to be specialized settings that are IRIs (unique identifiers), but they had been filled with regular text strings. (Examples of the unique identifiers can be found in the help text below each field.)

These invalid settings were causing the final parsing stage (using rapper) to fail. When we removed them we were able to parse the ontology successfully.

Good Afternoon,
We continue to experience parsing errors with the Epilepsy and Seizure Ontology (EpSO) OWL file.

The previous submission also experienced similar BioPortal parsing error documented as Issue#216:

The BioPortal issue tracker noted that the EpSO OWL file was correctly parsed in the BioPortal staging environment (

The latest release of EpSO (version 2.1) OWL is experiencing same error "Error Rdf Labels").

We request your help in addressing this error at the earliest as we have received community feedback regarding their inability to visually browse EpSO in the BioPortal "Classes" and "Properties" tabs.

Thank you for your time and consideration!
