[bioontology-support] recognize only exact term and synonyms?

This is what it does. It only does exact string matches. Some ontologies
have a name in the singular form and synonyms as plurals (or the reverse).
In this case only will we pick up the plural form.

Subject: [bioontology-support] recognize only exact term and synonyms?




I was using the NCBO Annotator for some disease concept recognizing
work(with Human Disease Ontology HDO) when I notice that some very
obvious-terms are not recognized by NCBO Annotator. One example will be
'ALZHEIMER DISEASE' (without the 's).  After I checked with more examples,
I noticed that the tool is doing exact match for term's or synonyms in HDO
so when there are variants in the words, it won't work as expect. Is this
true or did I do anything wrong?
