Through discussions with the CDM Genomics Working Group we realized that instead of trying to capture every possible data point related to a patient’s genome in the CDM it may be better to start with a research question or analytic use case that would benefit from the addition of genomic covariates. This will help us focus on getting the most important pieces of information into the data model first. Along those same lines we also want to understand who among us in the community actually have genomic data readily available to be mapped. Again, we want to target our efforts towards creating a solution that will benefit the most collaborators and knowing what data is currently out there will help us do that. With that being said, please respond to this post with either:
- A research question or analytic use case that requires genomic data
- A data source that you own or have access to with genomic data you would like converted to the Common Data Model
We will discuss these at our next genomics meeting on March 20th; all details can be found here.
