Thank you very much indeed for your help.
After obtaining the api key, I can now access the page:
and when the page is loaded, it says on top
* page": 1,
* "pageCount": 27
So I guess I would expect 27 pages of mappings.
But starting from page 8, it becomes empty. Would you explain what this means?
This appears to be a bug in our system. Apologies for this inconvenience. I’ve entered an issue in our public issue tracker. You can follow the progress here if you’d like:
What I try to achieve is for each Mesh term I get from pubmed for a paper, I want to convert it to an MP, if available.
Do you think this url is the best way to achieve this?
There are a lot of different ways to retrieve mappings in BioPortal. Given a particular MESH term (e.g.: “Myopia"), you can use a REST call to get all the mappings for that term:
You could iterate through the result set and select only those mappings from the MP ontology.
The various ways to retrieve mappings are detailed on the documentation page:
I am also not sure the best way to traverse the tree to obtain the mapping for the Mesh terms not in the given url above?
As I mentioned above, this looks like a bug in our system that we’ll need to investigate and fix.
