[bioontology-support] [BioPortal] Feedback from sean.guerrero

Hi Sean,

The web-based BioPortal application doesn’t have a table that lists CPT codes and preferred names. We just display the ontology classes as a navigable tree structure.

I’m not sure if using the REST API is a possibility for you. You can pass multiple terms to the search endpoint, e.g., the following URL uses all the CPT codes you listed below (see the q={…} portion):

http://data.bioontology.org/search?q={24546%2024565%2024566%2024575%2024579%2024586}&ontologies=CPT&include=prefLabel&display_links=false&display_context=false<http://data.bioontology.org/search?q=%7B24546%2024565%2024566%2024575%2024579%2024586%7D&ontologies=CPT&include=prefLabel&display_links=false&display_context=false>

If you enter that URL in a browser window, you can see a list of the preferred names for those codes. Screen shot below. FYI - you need an API key to use the REST API (instructions for getting one are here: https://www.bioontology.org/wiki/BioPortal_Help#Getting_an_API_key).

We also provide examples in a GitHub repository for using the API programmatically: https://github.com/ncbo/ncbo_rest_sample_code. It’s possible to write a short script that would retrieve this data.

Hope that information helps.

Kind regards,
Jennifer

Hi Jennifer,

Thanks for the quick response!
I have a batch of CPT codes and would like to pull the descriptions under the Preferred Name field. Example below:

It doesn’t look like there’s a way to pull a batch of these and the only way to do it would be to copy and paste the CPT codes, one by one. Is this correct? Is their a table of some sort on your website with all CPT codes and preferred names?
