[bioontology-support] SNOMED Ontology

Fri Jun 6 17:36:06 PDT 2014

Hi Robert,

I figured out active_ingredient. Still not sure how CUI is ties in.

Thanks Robert.

I have downloaded SNOMED CT and run the PERL scripted as you suggested.  The resulting owl file does not appear to be as rich as what is available via For example, I can locate the concept active_ingredient_of or CUI.

Is there an addition set of transformations I need to run?

Thanks for your help.

There is a PERL script that is distributed with the SNOMED CT International and US (and likely other) editions which will transform the SNOMED CT Release Format 2 (RF2) distribution files into an OWL representation.  The transform is included in the SNOMED CT distributions from the NLM for use in the US.  I use it frequently, and I think it's likely the best way to get what you're looking for.

SNOMED has a more restrictive license than most of the ontologies in BioPortal and we cannot make it available for download. We are only licensed to provide a browser. You should try the contact information on the BioPortal SNOMED summary page to get a copy. I know that some effort has gone into making SNOMED available in OWL but I am not sure if this is even publically available yet.

Is it possible to download the Systematized Nomenclature of Medicine - Clinical Terms ontology found here : ?  I would like to work with the ontology locally.

I would like to get the information in OWL format if possible.

Thanks for your help.
