What did you do?
Used an ontology-based approach to convert the multiple hierarchical ASCii files to a unified Linked Data Graph representation. MedDRA terminology files are under license, but the conversion R scripts are freely available to anyone who wishes to convert their MedDRA coding to Linked Data.
The code is early draft work. Review, comment, and improvements are welcome!
MedDRAReadAsc.R is the main conversion file, available here: https://github.com/phuse-org/MedDRAasRDF/tree/master/r
