[bioontology-support] UMLS REST Service Access Request

Hi Steven,

The UMLS REST services based on the UMLS metathesaurus will be  
discontinued and are replaced with the BioPortal REST services: 
. The main differences are that the BioPortal REST services access the  
individual terminology and that queries by AUI are not supported. In  
order to traverse the hierarchy by CUI, the hierarchy services can be  
used as listed here: 
.  Does your use case require query by AUI?

If there are UMLS terminologies that you would like to access, but do  
not see in BioPortal ( 
), please request that they be loaded.

Best regards,
