Units: mutations per megabase

(JD Liddil) #1

So of all the units of measurement we have, mutations per megabase is the only one not in any vocabulary I can find. Not sure how to go about coding this in Measurement.

According to the documentation https://www.ohdsi.org/web/wiki/doku.php?id=documentation:vocabulary:ucum
“All UCUM Concepts are manually curated, and additions and changes can be made on request.”
So we can add this concept.
@Christian_Reich do we have any routine of new concepts adding like someone should approve or something?

No. We just add. Something like concept_code “{mutations}/{megabase}”, concept_name “mutations per megabase”.

Of course, neither “mutation” nor “megabase” are not canonical units, not even physical ones. They are just enumerations. Like “Cells” or “Colony Forming Units”.
