[bioontology-support] [BioPortal] Feedback from Sougato Das

I have read through the API documentation and I am sorry to say that I cannot figure out how to get the "classifies" and "Classified as" values of a given term through the API. I would be grateful if you could show me a sample API call that pulls the "classifies" and "Classified as" value of a given term.

Kind regards,

Hello Sougato,

Apologies that we don’t currently offer mappings as a file download. They're only accessible programmatically via our REST API, e.g.:,MEDDRA

This is more performant version of the REST call if you’re not interested in seeing the hypermedia links:,MEDDRA&display_links=false

Kind regards,

Hello Samson,

Is there anyway to download the mappings, particularly the one between MeSH and MedDRA? I can see how to access it in the user interface, but there does not appear to be anyway to export it. Perhaps this is available in the API?

Kind regards

“SIB” is a UMLS abbreviation for "has sibling relationship in a Metathesaurus source vocabulary” [1].

With best regards,

Hello Sougato,

Could you please be more specific about what class, in which ontology you’re looking at? The URL you sent results in a 404 error (<>).

What does "Inverse of SIB" mean? I've googled extensively for the definition of this term and have not had any luck. Thanks.
