This page lists use cases and provides examples of how these questions can be answered using NCBO software (web services and widgets), with links to code samples and documentation.
- I have a list of terms that were used to annotate a data set, how can I see if any of these match terms from ontologies in BioPortal?
- You can use the Search web service to send your list of terms to BioPortal to identify if any are found in BioPortal ontologies. The Search web service is described here: http://www.bioontology.org/wiki/index.php/NCBO_REST_services#Search_services and example code can be found here: https://bmir-gforge.stanford.edu/gf/project/client_examples/scmsvn/?action=browse&path=%2Ftrunk%2F
- I would like to identify all terms mapped from my ontology interest to all other ontologies in BioPortal
- I have pages of text that I would like to identify if it contains any ontology terms that I can use for annotation.
- Use the Annotator web service to identify ontology terms within your text. See http://www.bioontology.org/wiki/index.php/Annotator_Web_service for a description of the web service and code samples.
- I have PubMed abstracts and want to link information in the abstracts to my database of interest.
- Process the text with the Annotator web service. If your database of interest is included in the NCBO Resource Index you can search the database(s) for records that contain these terms. See http://www.bioontology.org/wiki/index.php/Resource_Index for more details on the Resource Index web service.
- I have a web form with fields I would like to users to fill-in with a specific set of terms from the Gene Ontology.
- I would like to include the graph display of my ontology on my web site.
- Choose the Visualization widget from the widgets page (e.g. http://bioportal.bioontology.org/ontologies/44532#widgets) for your ontology of interest and select the "Get Code" button to add the ontology graph to your web site.
- I would like to get all terms from an ontology and re-format the data to use in my own system.
- Use the "Get all terms" web service (http://www.bioontology.org/wiki/index.php/NCBO_REST_services#Get_all_terms_using_the_specific_ontology_version_id and http://www.bioontology.org/wiki/index.php/NCBO_REST_services#Get_all_terms_using_the_virtual_ontology_id) to get a list of all of the terms and all details about each term, e.g. synonyms, definition, subclass, etc.
