[bioontology-support] New rest API

Wed Dec 11 06:49:35 PST 2013

I use bioportal to extract terms for a given ontology.  I need to know term names, ids and relationships such as parent ids.
I plan to use something analogous to this: and page through the data.
I am looking at the new interface...  I can handle format changes.. but have a few questions about the data being returned.

1.       IDs

In the past we had <id> and <fullId>.

Looks like the new interface uses the old fullId as the new <id>
I can parse out the info I need
                <id></id<>>  would become id = 706898.
But I need to  know if all the ontologies follow this format.

2.       For each term I need to know its parent.

In the past I extracted this info from the <relation><entry> lists.

Now it looks like I have to follow a link to get this info?  I've tried that and I seem to end up with an orphanClass.

Page 1 of RXNORM gives me Fentanyl as the first term.

Which has :

<parents href=

When I go to this page I get:

"@id": ""<>,
