Is it possible to download a subject of an ontology? Say given a class, download all the sub classes and properties in rdf? I see the download url in the doc, http://data.bioontology.org/ontologies/BRO/download . Let me know, thanks!
I don’t think we offer exactly what you’re asking for. The download link downloads the entire ontology source file in whatever format was submitted to us.
You can retrieve the subclasses of a given class using the “descendants" REST call, e.g.:
The format though is JSON (or XML if you specify that).
You might have a look at tools offered by the Protege project (open source / freely available) . I believe the desktop version of Protege has functionality that allows you to extract/copy/move ontology axioms. It also allows you to save your ontology in various formats.
