Subject Re: building a *real sample dictionary* without UMLS login
Date Fri, 02 Oct 2015 14:10:45 GMT
Option 1: 
hg clone https://bitbucket.org/invitae/medgen-mysql
cd medgen-mysql 
make user 
make medgen 

Then we point cTAKES to use DictionaryLookup using the MySQL database. 
Nicely indexed, customizable, linkable, etc. 

Option 2: 
hg clone https://bitbucket.org/invitae/medgen-mysql
cd medgen-mysql 
./mirror.sh medgen/urls 

This will fetch the dictionary files, replace MRCONSO with MGCONSO from medgen/mirror directory.


Option 3: 
Directly bake this process right into the cTAKES installation. 
Interested in what you and others feel would be the fastest way to get new users online with
cTAKES. 

Hope this helps, 
AndyMC@apache.org
