A data frame with columns "id", "label", "isDefinedBy", and "matchType" and one row for each term match.
Matches can be filtered by type of term (class, property, etc), ontology in which the term is defined, and by type of match (exact, partial, etc). The term properties considered for matching can also be controlled.
