[bioontology-support] [BioPortal] Feedback from Michele LeNoue-Newton

Hi Michele,

The reprocessing of NCIT has been completed. Looks like the search is now working properly. Let me know if any of the terms you are expecting to find are still missing.

Thank you,

Hi Michele,

Upon further inspection, it looks like the latest version did process correctly, but the part that generates the index for searches had not fully completed. I’ll try to re-indexing it on my and and see if that addresses your issue. I’ll keep you posted.

Hi Michele,

Thank you for your email. The version of NCIT we host in BioPortal is provided to us directly by the NIH/NCI staff. I’ve CCd Gilberto Fragoso from NIH/NCI, who has been in charge of maintaining the BioPortal version of NCI Thesaurus. It looks like a new version (20.02d) of the ontology was uploaded to us recently (2/24/20). I hope Gilberto can offer some light on what changes have been introduced since the previous version (20.01d).

Sorry, I couldn’t be more helpful, but Gilberto should be able to offer some assistance with your concerns.

The latest version of the NCIT released in the BioPortal and used in applications like REDCap appears to be incomplete. It no longer contains many critical terms, including major disease classifications (Melanoma, Lung Adenocarcinoma) or single drug entities (carboplatin, cisplatin).
