getCuiDef.pl - This program returns the definition of a concept or a term.
This program takes in a CUI or a term and returns its definitions. If a term is specified, the associated CUI is obtained using the sources specified in the configuration file. The definitions come from the entire UMLS.
Usage: getCuiDef.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:
SAB :: <include|exclude> <source1, source2, ... sourceN>
REL :: <include|exclude> <relation1, relation2, ... relationN>
RELA :: <include|exclude> <rela1, rela2, ... relaN> (optional)
For example, if we wanted to use the MSH vocabulary with only the RB/RN relations, the configuration file would be:
SAB :: include MSH REL :: include RB, RN RELA :: include inverse_isa, isa
SAB :: include MSH REL :: exclude PAR, CHD
If you go to the configuration file directory, there will be example configuration files for the different runs that you have performed.
