BioPortal is a Web portal that provides access to 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 has a service-oriented architecture; the NCBO Web services provide the functionality found in BioPortal and these Web services can be incorporated into other software applications to access and use ontology content. BioPortal groups ontologies by domain to ease finding relevant ontologies and allows users to browse, search and visualize the content of ontologies. BioPortal also provides value-added features like ontology recommendation, text annotation, ontology mapping, and a reference index to resources like PubMed.
