If you have to ask, you are probably not at ease with parsing and processing XML.
Extensible Markup Language (XML) is a markup language that defines a set of rules for encoding documents in a format that is both human-readable and machine-readable.
See wikipedia for further information.
But, don't worry, it is still possible to use the data in a simple way. There is plenty of software able to open it. For instance, if you are an Excel user, it is very easy : just download a file (right-click the link and download it). Once it is downloaded, just open it with a recent version of Excel (2003 or later). Excel will transform the XML into a wonderful Excel spreadsheet. Then you can save it in any other format convenient for you (xls, cvs, txt etc.)
Mac users, beware! It seems that Office on Mac OS version has some difficulties managing XML in general.
The data on the Orphanet website is managed daily. The XML files are produced monthly. See the How are the data produced ? for more information. So maybe the data will be in the next release.
Also, in Orphadata the dataset is a partial extraction of the data stored in Orphanet, which is also accessible at www.orpha.netfor consultation purposes only.
For instance in Orphanet you may find some diseases which are not rare (or rare in USA but not in Europe). In Orphadata you will not find a non rare disease.
Sorry, but the files are produced automatically with a specific process. We cannot manage to provide several formats on demand.
We do not provide data to answer particular queries. However, Orphadata provides access, on request, to other elements of the Orphanet database after signature of a Data Transfer Agreement. The list of the data is in our catalogue. See "About Orphadata"
Nevertheless, we are open to exploring partnerships. You can contact us using our contact form.
