BioPortal is a library of biomedical ontologies and terminologies developed in Web Ontology Language (OWL), Resource Description Framework (RDF)(S), Open Biological and Biomedical Ontologies (OBO) format, and Protégé frames and Rich Release Format. BioPortal groups ontologies by domain to aid discoverability and allows users to browse, search and visualize the content of ontologies. BioPortal also provides ontology recommendation, text annotation, ontology mapping, and a reference index to resources like PubMed.

AgroPortal is an ontology repository for agronomy as well as food, plant, agriculture and biodiversity sciences. It provides ontology hosting, search, versioning, visualization, comment, and recommendation; enables semantic annotation; stores and exploits ontology alignments; and enables interoperation with the semantic web. To align with the needs of the agronomy community, AgroPortal uses SKOS vocabularies and trait dictionaries) and supported features (offering detailed metadata and advanced annotation capabilities).
