[bioontology-support] Question about the REST service for Mesh Extraction

Hi Trish and thanks for your support so far.
I was having a look at the owl file I've downloaded using your URL and I  have noticed that no definition for term is available, while i can see those in bioportal  (for instance for the term and also when accessing the rest service for that (<>)
There is any way that you know to have definitions included in the generated file?

For the URIs, they should be in the form:{conceptid}.  There is also the parameter "filterrelations" you can try.

Great Trish, thanks.
I've just downloaded the file and it look good.
Few questions:
what URI should we used to have each term resolved by bioportal (or at least pointing on the correspondent bioportal page)?
There is any parameter to have just specific annotation properties extracted?

Thanks Carlo. To build-up the proper URL, here are the pieces to use with the View Extraction web service:  --> web service signature
44776/  --> ontology version identifier
?conceptid=U000006  --> concept identifier for parent term
&ontologyname=  --> name of resulting ontology and timing parameter.

Therefore, the full URL is:

I don't think so. It's the one with all disease subcategories. If you look for disease in the extractor is this one

Hi Carlo,

Is this the 'Disease' term you refer to in MeSH:

Hi Trish,
yesterday I've played around a bit with the Extraction tool (very nice).
As you know we are trying to extract all the mesh disease branch.
You've pointed us to the documentation to use a rest service to have a whole branch extracted (<>
I am trying to figure out what parameters to use (i.e. what the URL of the rest service would look like) in order to get   all the subclasses of Disease (Mesh category)  [see the superclass information here <>]
It would be probably easier for you to send us the correct URL than me to figure out the correct  values of the parameters :-)
We can get in touch anytime if you need more info.
