[bioontology-support] API Access

Hi Trevor,

I am assuming you mean iterate over classes for a given ontology (parsing an ontology is an internal process and isn’t available via the REST service). To iterate over an ontology, you can call the “classes endpoint”, paging through the classes as you perform your custom logic on them. For example:
etc…until you get to the last page.

Hope this helps.

Hello Michael,

Thanks for getting back to me. I have been able to get an API key and have been looking through the API documentation, although I am having a bit of trouble trying to parse through a given ontology. Suppose I wanted to parse out the CPT ontology, how would I approach that?

I was wondering if I could get access to your REST API? Thanks!
