Hello Jackie,

I have a question regarding SNOMED CT on BioPortal. I wonder how I can download the newest version SNOMED CT data from BioPortal, as I don't see a 'Download' button any where on the SNOMED CT page?

Due to licensing restrictions, we’re unable to offer downloads of the SNOMEDCT ontology source file from our public website. If you’re a current UMLS license holder [1], please contact our technical program manager John Graybeal (cc'ed) offline for possible download options.

Alternatively, you can access SNOMEDCT data via our REST API, which doesn’t require a license. The API is documented here:

If you decide to use the API, you’ll need to get an API key:

I am specifically interested in the SNOMED CT disease terms, how can I get all those terms?

Here’s an example of a REST call that would retrieve the “Disease" class from SNOMEDCT:<>?apikey=your_api_key_here

You can use the hypermedia links in the reply to explore things like parents, children, descendants, etc.

Kind regards,
