[bioontology-support] Annotator plus API compatibility

There is more detailed documentation in the PDF at  which is pointed to by the main paper about this capability at

I just tried the API on BioPortal using this string, which corresponds to the one in the first PDF.:,+but+his+father+had+history+of+skin+cancer.&ontologies=MESH&longest_only=true&exclude_numbers=false&whole_word_only=true&exclude_synonyms=false&expand_mappings=false&negation=true&experiencer=true&temporality=true&lemmatize=false&score=cvalue&semantic_groups=DISO&display_links=false&display_context=false&apikey=4a5011ea-75fa-4be6-8e89-f45c8c84844e

This did not produce the expected results—my construction may be wrong—so we'll have to see what's happening at the moment. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Dear Rayyan,

Having developed much of the current Annotator+ extension, I also have a simple python package to query the extended API.
You may find it here:

An usage example is given in the README. Although you can't install it with pip yet, you can copy the "client" directory into your project to use the package.

Please don't hesitate if you have further interrogations.

Best Regards,

Hi everyone, can the new Bio Annotator plus platform be called from a Python API as was the case previously?
I just checked the Api documentation, and it does not seem to be updated to reflect the new query parameters like
"UMLS semantic groups" or negation etc. Could you please let me know if there is a timeline
for when I could use an api for these new features?
Thanks you for your time,
