[bioontology-support] NCBO Virtual Applicance: Internal Server Error

This is a known problem for branches of very large ontologies. We have designed a fix but it will take some time to implement. Currently the only workaround is to get all the search results and then prune them yourselves. Our proposed fix will be much better (faster) than this but it will take a while to get to it.

Subject: [bioontology-support] NCBO Virtual Applicance: Internal Server Error

We're using the NCBO Virtual Appliance v2.4.  It fails if we use the subtree_root_id parameter with a high level term (such as C7057 – Disease, Disorder or Finding, which represents a big branch of terms).


C77140 is a much narrower term.


With this URl, we consistently receive an "Internal Server Error".  The same URI works fine with the server.

Any chance this can be fixed?
