NCBO has released BioPortal 2.5, a platform for browsing, visualising, mapping, and commenting on biomedical ontologies and terminologies.
BioPortal is a comprehensive repository of biomedical ontologies that enables users to access and share ontologies that are actively used in biomedical communities. Users can publish their ontologies in BioPortal, link ontologies to each other, review ontologies and comment on specific terms, list projects that use ontologies, annotate textual metadata with ontologies, and use Web services to incorporate ontologies or their components into their software applications.
The repository hosts approximately 200 ontologies and provides an array of tools to search, browse, and visualize these ontologies, as well as to map the ontologies to one another.
The new release of BioPortal includes new features, Web services, and bug fixes.
The National Center for Biomedical Ontology (NCBO) is one of the seven National Centers for Biomedical Computing (NCBCs) funded by the United States National Institutes of Health (NIH) Roadmap Project.
