Hi Kevin, 


We have recently loaded UMLS ontologies into BioPortal. Would accessing the terms from BioPortal and it’s associated web services ( provide the access to the terms, structure, content that you are interested in?

I’ve been experiencing some problems accessing the service.


It seems like the “root” concept of many sources is not connected to the remaining concepts in that source.


For instance,


works returning 








The International Classification of Diseases: 9th revision, Clinical Modification














fails as does /children of this url?


How can I traverse through these sources that don’t appear to be linked?  


It should be noted that linkage is working fine for some sources like NCI, and SNOMEDCT but

the majority fail with this issue.
