Slide1:  Frank Hartel, PhD Enterprise Vocabulary Services National Cancer Institute NCI Enterprise Vocabulary Services (EVS) and Semantic Integration at NCI - An Overview - Outline::  Outline: Terminology management and semantic integration at NCI NCI Enterprise Vocabulary Services NCI Thesaurus (NCIt) NCI Metathesaurus (NCI Meta) Collaborations NCI biomedical informatics:  NCI biomedical informatics Goal: A virtual web of interconnected data, individuals, and organizations redefines how research is conducted, care is provided, and patients/participants interact with the biomedical research enterprise Interoperability:  in·ter·op·er·a·bil·i·ty ability of a system...to use the parts or equipment of another system Source: Merriam-Webster web site interoperability ability of two or more systems or components to exchange information and to use the information that has been exchanged.

No Interoperability :  No Controlled Terminology? No Interoperability Systems cannot exchange or use information if they use incompatible codes or tokens to signify meaning Terminology services provide token and codes Proper use of them assures consistent meaning across the enterprise Slide6:  Vocabulary for CDE specification Dictionary, thesaurus, ontology services via caBIO API Can it be done? caCORE - An Example via downloads cancer Common Ontologic Representation Environment (caCORE):  Information integration Cross-discipline reasoning cancer Common Ontologic Representation Environment (caCORE) biomedical objects common data elements controlled vocabulary Common Data Elements:  Common Data Elements Structured data reporting elements Precisely defining the questions and answers What question are you asking, exactly? What are the possible answers, and what do they mean? biomedical objects common data elements controlled vocabulary Biomedical Information Objects:  Biomedical Information Objects Data service infrastructure developed using OMG’s Model Driven Architecture approach Object models expressed in UML represent actual biomedical research entities such as genes, sequences, chromosomes, sequences, cellular pathways, ontologies, clinical protocols, etc. The object models form the basis for uniform APIs (Java, SOAP, HTTP-XML, Perl) that provide an abstraction layer and interfaces for developers to access information without worrying about the back-end data stores biomedical objects common data elements controlled vocabulary Binding Data, Metadata to Terminology - caCORE SDK:  Binding Data, Metadata to Terminology - caCORE SDK UML Modeling Tool (provided by user) Information model that will define data classes, attributes and relationships Semantic Connector Annotate UML model with ontology concepts: bridges the world of databases to that of structured semantics. UML Loader (run by NCI staff) Loads model into the caDSR metadata registry Model and associated semantics are available at runtime Code Generator Model and a code template are inputs into generator Creates the ‘caCORE-like’ n-tier software system with Java and Web Services APIs caCORE SDK:  caCORE SDK Extending Interoperability Beyond the Enterprise:  Extending Interoperability Beyond the Enterprise cancer Biomedical Informatics Grid (caBIG) Common, widely distributed infrastructure permits cancer research community to focus on innovation Shared vocabulary, data elements, data models facilitate information exchange Collection of interoperable applications developed to common standard Raw cancer research data is available for mining and integration Slide13:  caBIG -

The secondary tumor contains cells that are like those in the original (primary) tumor. For example, breast cancer cells may spread (metastasize) to the lungs and cause the growth of a new tumor. When this happens, the disease is called metastatic breast cancer. (NCI)  Synonym Metastasis   DEFINITION NCI-GLOSS|(meh-TAS-ta-sis) The spread of cancer from one part of the body to another. A tumor formed from cells that have spread is called a secondary tumor, a metastatic tumor, or a metastasis. The secondary tumor contains cells that are like those in the original (primary) tumor. The plural form of metastasis is metastases (meh-TAS-ta-seez).    Superconcepts: Cancer Progression Subconcepts: Distant Metastasis Intravascular Metastasis Other Examples ::  Other Examples : Use URI to view Details of a Drug Concept- http://nciterms.nci.nih.gov:80/NCIBrowser/ConceptReport.jsp?dictionary=NCI_Thesaurus&code=C620 Use GUI to search for and view hierarchy Http://nciterms.nci.nih.gov Fluvastatin Sodium NCI Metathesaurus::  NCI Metathesaurus: Filtered UMLS Metathesaurus extended with additional required vocabularies 930,000+ concepts, 2,200,000 terms and phrases with definitions Mappings among over 50 vocabularies Extensive synonymy: Over 40,000 terms for neoplasms mapped to 7,000 concepts Used as online dictionary and thesaurus, for mapping and document indexing NCI Metathesaurus (2):  NCI Metathesaurus (2) Minor releases monthly, Major releases twice a year Provides a mapped overlap and partial inter-relation of current versions of NCI and partner required vocabularies, ex.
