At SIB we actively use OMOP for multiple projects.
Current assortment of the official concept ids served via Athena is well suited to register what is in current clinical routine, e.g. biochemical measurements. We need to go further and register massive results of proteomics, lipidomics and other x-omics measurements. Does Athena have an official vocabulary for those?
If not, we can obviously generate new concept ids. We thought to make an id per each combination of measurement type [e.g. proteomics] and particular target [e.g. albumin, Uniprot id P02768]. If we go this way, should we constrain new concept ids to a certain range of integers to make sure these new ids never duplicate Athena official ids?
thanks for your answers
