One particular purpose of the Cancer MoonshotSM Initiative is to produce a Nationwide Most cancers Details Ecosystem to gather, share, and interconnect a wide array of significant datasets so that scientists, clinicians, and people will be ready to each contribute and evaluate details, facilitating discovery that will finally boost individual treatment and outcomes.
As element of this endeavor, the Cancer Research Details Commons (CRDC) aims to collate details across diverse teams of cancer scientists, just about every collecting biomedical details in diverse formats. This signifies the details have to be retrospectively harmonized and remodeled to empower this details to be submitted. In addition, to be findable by the broader scientific neighborhood, coherent details (metadata) is important about the details fields and values.
Using structured biomedical details files, problem participants will establish applications to automate annotation of metadata fields and values, working with out there research details annotations (e.g., caDSR Common Details Aspects (CDEs)) as properly as established terminologies and ontologies (e.g., NCI Thesaurus (NCIt), Logical Observation Identifiers Names and Codes (LOINC), Mondo Disease Ontology (Mondo), International Classification of Disorders (ICD)).
The Competitor aims to significantly reduce the burden of incorporating these annotations across the details ecosystem to streamline and empower each retrospective harmonization as properly as details question, discovery, and interpretation. This problem addresses this time-consuming undertaking with automated metadata annotation of structured details.
Submission to this Problem have to be received by 5:00 pm PT April 24, 2020.
