[bioontology-support] [BioPortal] Feedback from Alex Milinovich

A few UMLS ontologies were updated in the last data update for the Annotator. However, an error occurred in populating the correct semantic type information for these ontologies and the terms are returned from the Annotator with the value T999 for the semantic type. To confirm this is the issue, which ontologies are you seeing return T999?

Resolving this issue is underway and new data is anticipated in the September release. In the interim there are some other mechanisms to get the semantic type information for terms, e.g. using the "Get Terms" [1] Web service.
