getExtendedDef.pl - This program returns the extended definition of a concept or a term.
This program takes in a CUI or a term and returns its extended definition consisting of the its definition, the definition of its all of its relations.
Usage: getExtendedDef.pl [OPTIONS] [CUI|TERM]
Concept Unique Identifier (CUI) or a term from the Unified Medical Language System (UMLS)
This is the configuration file. The format of the configuration file is as follows:
SABDEF :: <include|exclude> <source1, source2, ... sourceN>
RELDEF :: <include|exclude> <relation1, relation2, ... relationN>
SABDEF refers to the sources in which the definitions can come from. RELDEF refers to the relations in which the definitions can come from.
The possible relations that can be included in RELDEF are: 1. all of the possible relations in MRREL such as PAR, CHD, ... 2. CUI which refers the concepts definition 3. ST which refers to the concepts semantic types definition 4. TERM which refers to the concepts associated terms
For example, if we wanted to use the MSH vocabulary and we wanted to use the terms, the CUIs definition and the CUIs parent definition and its semantic type definition as the extended definition the configuration file would be:
SABDEF :: include MSH RELDEF :: include TERM, CUI, PAR, ST or
SABDEF :: include MSH
If you go to the configuration file directory, there will be example configuration files for the different runs that you have performed.
The default is:
SABDEF :: include UMLS_ALL RELDEF :: include UMLS_ALL
which uses all of the sources and all of the relations.
