Get Concept Details

By | September 22, 2011

Given an concept name it returns an object including concept id, name (a.k.a. NIFSTD_ID), pref_label, description/comments, list of synonyms.

Signatures:
./concepts/{NIFSTD_ID}[?{optional_args}]
./concepts/oid/{OntoQuest_ID}[?{optional_args}]
./concepts/term/{Term}[?{optional_args}]

Notes:
* NIFSTD_ID – ID in NIFSTD, e.g. sao1511566913, birnlex_1566. It is used as class name in NIF ontology. It can be a list of IDs separated by semicolon, e.g. birnlex_1106;birnlex_1171;birnlex_1561;birnlex_1566;birnlex_904;birnlex_1568;birnlex_1171;birnlex_1135.
* OntoQuest_ID – internal OntoQuest ID (oid). This ID is not consistent between different database instances or ontology versions. However, it is the fastest way to fetch a concept or related concepts.
* Term – Lexical form of a concept or its synonyms.

Optional arguments:
* ontology= – fetch the concept from a different ontology. The default ontology is NIF. It can be changed in configuration file.

Return: an object including concept id, name (a.k.a. NIFSTD_ID), pref_label, description/comments, list of synonyms.
