Managing Ontologies in OntoPortal
The OntoPortal Virtual Appliance comes with a few example ontologies already installed. You are expected to populate the site with the ontologies that interest you.
We provide general ontology submission instructions using different techniques. There are separate sections for specialized cases like handling UMLS ontologies and copying ontologies from other repositories.
We describe how to manage ontologies for the user(s) of your repository, including understanding the ontology log files created by the system.
OntoPortal uses OWLAPI and can ingest most ontologies that OWLAPI can parse. However, there are some additional constraints, and we address those in our sections on limitations and troubleshooting submissions.
