From Alexander D:
Most of the MESH IDs in CL and UBERON are of the form "MESH:A.XX.XX.XX", with variable number of '.XX's. For example:
MESH:A.11.329.228, MESH:A.06.224.365, or MESH:A.13.223.
However, MESH itself omits the period following the A in their IDs for MESH tree numbers.
A11.329.228 [Fibroblasts, http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/mesh?term=A11.329.228]
A06.224.365 [ Enterochromaffin-like Cells, http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/mesh?term=A06.224.365]
A13.223 [ Cloaca, http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/mesh?term=A13.223]
Using the MESH IDs with the periods after the letter on http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/mesh yields the result " The following term was not found in MeSH: A.11.329.228." etc.
Using the MESH IDs that do not follow the letter with the period yields the correct search result, http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/mesh?term=A11.329.228
If one googles the MESH:A.11.329.228 form, lots of ontology related results are returned, but no links to an actual MESH resource.
If one googles the MESH:A11.329.228 form, links to MESH term listings at NCBI and elsewhere are returned.
There are a few MESH IDs in CL with the correct form, probably put there by Terry. I think the use of the MESH ID form with the period after the letter was an ID format that was used by original developers of the CL and carried on into UBERON.
I think we should fix all these MESH IDs in CL and UBERON to conform to what MESH actually uses. A simple find and replace.
