Hi Ahmed,

    the next release of the onto-perl suite will provide this 
functionality (still fixing the obo2owl conversion).
    We're also developing a web page for providing this service. Keep 

    Check out http://www.cellcycleontology.org

    In principle, the API is for any OBO ontology (like GO, and of 
course CCO).
