[bioontology-support] Versioning Question

Hi Jason,

I assume you’re referring to the BioPortal SPARQL endpoint?  We published that as a beta service several years ago, but haven’t had the resources to keep the data up-to-date.

Alternatively, we actively maintain a REST API for accessing the most recent BioPortal data.  You can find information about the various submissions of NCIT using this call:

The highest ID is the latest submission.  Or, you can see information about the latest submission using this call:

Any other calls you make to retrieve NCIT content are executed against data from the latest submission, e.g.:

… retrieves class data from the latest submission.

The REST API is documented here:

Kind regards,

I see there are multiple versions of the NCIT ontology show by using the following query:
"PREFIX omv: <>

SELECT ?ont ?name ?acr
?ont a omv:Ontology .
?ont omv:acronym ?acr .
?ont omv:name ?name .
  FILTER regex(?name,  "NCI")

I'm assuming the results returned by that are simply the versioned ontologies highest number being the newest. But when to query the NCIT ontology I use:
So my question is does that ^^ route to the latest revision of NCIT? or are the versions returned in first query outdated and NCIT resolves to the latest? I don't see anything in the doc about this.

Thanks for the clarification,
