[bioontology-support] Seeking count of concepts in an ontology via Web service

Thx Trish. Err, this "ontology version id" is a new one for me. Two Q's:


1. I'm not seeing a tag for "ontology version id" in
-8443-372982439b5f. What am I missing?

2. How does one go from a virtual ontology ID to "ontology version id"? A
quick look at the wiki didn't reveal much.


Thx again,

is:{ontology version

Howdy. Q: Is there a Web service that returns the number of concepts in an
ontology, given e.g. a virtual ontology ID? Couldn't find such in the
various docs (other than downloading the entire ontology and counting t
myself). I imagine there must be such, right? J


Thx and cheers,
