UTS API 2.0 Beta Launch. NLM Tech Bull. 2012 May-Jun;(386):b2.
The beta version of the UMLS Terminology Services API 2.0 (UTS API 2.0) is now available. The UTS API 2.0 is intended for application developers to perform Web service calls and retrieve UMLS data within their own applications. The UTS API 2.0 provides the ability to search, retrieve, and filter terms, concepts, attributes, relations, metadata and more from over 160 vocabularies of the UMLS Metathesaurus, as well as the Semantic Network. New paging, sorting and filtering (PSF) capabilities allow you to customize results of your Web service calls in many ways: you may choose to include or exclude specific criteria, sort results by fields, or specify results displayed per page. We provide a suite of Web Services Description Language (WSDL) files, API installation instructions, and sample code in the documentation at: https://uts.nlm.nih.gov/home.html#apidocumentation.
The UTS API 2.0 is a replacement for the legacy UTS API, which will be deprecated over the coming months.
