Hi Pranita,

Thank you for contacting us. I don’t know what your planned algorithm is for finding a connection between a symptom and disease, but here are a few BioPortal REST services that may be of help:

All classes of SYMP ontology
The default page size is 50. You can iterate over all the pages, processing each symptom individually:

All mappings of SYMP ontology
This service may give you possible connections between various symptoms and terms from other ontologies.

Mappings between two ontologies
This particular one is all the mappings between the Symptom and Disease ontologies. It may provide some idea on how these two related,DOID

You may find some other services that may be of use as well. Here is the link to our REST services documentation:

Unfortunately, we don’t have any resident Python experts on our team, so I can’t provide you with the exact sample code that you require. We do have some examples of Python code that may be of help:

While they don’t offer the exact scenario you are looking for, they give you an idea on how to connect to our services and use them to extract data you are interested in.

Hope this helps!

I want to read symptom ontology in python and query it to find relation between symptom and disease, for example something like, cold and fever may lead to flu. Will it be possible to do so using available symptom ontology and Python? It will be great help if you can provide resources or related links.
