Support for SKOS vocabularies in BioPortal

BioPortal is a web-based portal for accessing and sharing ontologies. The application fully supports ontology submissions in OWL and OBO format, and offers partial support for SKOS vocabularies. To follow is documentation of the minimum number of SKOS constructs that a SKOS vocabulary must contain in order to display well in BioPortal.

For every ontology entry in BioPortal, the application provides a tabbed interface with various views of the ontology data, e.g., a Classes tab with a tree structure to graphically depict the hierarchical collection of ontology classes.
