  1. It would be incredibly useful to be able to tag directly from the vocabularies of existing biomedical ontologies, something like the way you can in Editor—this would be great combined with the ability to fully search and use all those superterms.
  2. This could be implemented in a couple ways that I can think of:
    1. Top down: like in Editor. Select the ontology, then select a term
    2. Bottom up: Enter terms, then search for ontological matches/suggestions for them
  3. It might be helpful to see an entire ontology as a tag set, but you should not be able to modify existing formal ontologies.
  4. Some of those ontologies are updated pretty regularly (the cancer one is updated monthly, for instance), so an automatic updater for this would be best.
  5. You should probably narrow down the available ontologies slightly to those most likely to be of use, like the NIH Research Classifications and the Gene Ontology or the UMLS, ignoring stuff like BFO that isn’t applicable
