PSB Workshop

We will be hosting a workshop at the Pacific Symposium on Biocomputing. The digitalization of high value information is generating measurements on dynamic processes, interactions, and systems that cross multiple orders of magnitude. We are beginning to see innovative results that have emerged by linking, integrating, and harmonizing such data and knowledge across previously independent data and knowledge sources. For this workshop we invite submissions that will highlight new results linking and integrating data and knowledge across heterogeneous sources (e.g. electronic medical records, geo-code data, genetic information, social media).

Architecture and Implementation of a Clinical Research Data Warehouse for Prostate Cancer

Clinical research data warehouses for specific cancer types can enable the creation of more robust research cohorts. We linked data from the Stanford University EHR with the California Cancer Registry (CCR) to create a research data warehouse for prostate cancer. A disease-specific clinical research data warehouse combining multiple data sources can facilitate secondary data use and enhance observational research in oncology.
