The field of biological and biomedical science quickly generate large quantities of data and knowledge; often, domain knowledge is formalised using ontologies expressed in the Web Ontology Language (OWL). Ontology repositories such as Bioportal and Ontobee have been an important infrastructural component for managing ontologies, specifically to search, browse and download ontologies over the Web. We present the AberOWL system, a novel ontology repository that allows access to multiple ontologies through automated reasoning, utilizing parts of the OWL of the ontologies alongside a web interface and web services. AberOWL contains over 300 ontologies and integrates reasoning over ontologies with access to literature and SPARQL endpoints.
