OBO Explorer

The OBO Explorer is an ontology editor for GO and OBO OWL ontologies. It is implemented as a plug-in for Protege. It should be used with the OBOConverter tab which reads OBO files and converts them to OWL. The ontologies can then be edited using the OBO Explorer and OBO Ontology Metadata tabs.

Version 1.2 (August 2007) of the OBO Explorer provides a simple browser and editor for part-whole restrictions. Definitions can be created by linking to parent terms, and part-of links from other terms are also displayed. Version 1.001 of the OBO Converter is bundled in the OBO tools download (Feb 2008).

Ontology Version Manager

The Ontology Version Manager provides access to the OWL ontology server. Users can download ontologies, and after registering, upload and share ontologies with other users. Ontologies must be OWL (or XML). The Version Manager is currently available as a stand-alone Java 1.5 application. A Protege plug-in version is planned.

HELP readme

The ontology database is now up and running. You will be able to connect to it using the version manager tool. The system is populated with up-to-date OWL versions of the OBO ontologies. Email stuart@aiai.ed.ac.uk for an account. Note: you may experience longer download times for the larger ontologies depending on network connections etc - we are working to improve this.
