[bioontology-support] missing search results in NCI Thesaurus

We are having some trouble with the search index not finding everything
that it should. The index was updated yesterday and a number of the
missing terms reported below are now found. Unfortunately there are still
some missing terms. We are looking at this problem again today.

Subject: [bioontology-support] missing search results in NCI Thesaurus

 

On the NCI Thesaurus, when the user searches for 'Age', the results do not
include some of the matches I was expecting:
<http://data.bioontology.org/search?q=age&ontologies=NCIT>
http://data.bioontology.org/search?q=age&ontologies=NCIT

Some expected results:
 
<http://bioportal.bioontology.org/ontologies/NCIT/?p=classes&conceptid=htt

Subject Age

Search results contained 17 hits, but only a few from that list.  In
particular, the search results missed both "Age" and "Age-Years".
What is strange to me is that 'Age-Months' was on the list.  Can someone
help me better understand the search behavior of bioportal to explain
this?  Maybe its failing because the search string is on a stoplist or its
just too short/too common?

thanks,

Lee Surprenant
