The output is a standard EMBOSS ontology term file.
The results can be output in one of several styles by using the command-line qualifier -oformat xxx, where 'xxx' is replaced by the name of the required format. The available format names are: obo, brief, list, html, xml, json, excel.
See: http://emboss.sf.net/docs/themes/OntologyFormats.html for further information on ontology formats.
