Table 3 Results of the direct mapping of data elements to the NCI caDSR

From: Mapping data elements to terminological resources for integrating biomedical data sources

Step DEs CDEs Examples of DEs mapped to CDE(s)
Exact match of DEs to PN 10 10 Correct : gene function to "GeneFunction"
Exact match of DEs to LN 22 285 Correct : Location to "MapLocation"
Not useful : Description to 23 CDEs (e.g. "ContextDescription" and "GeneAliasDescription")
Exact match of split DEs to PN 10 10 Partial : other accession ids to "other"
Approximate match of split DEs to PN 273 2,467 Not useful : Name to 218 CDEs (e.g. "ApprovedStatusName" and "OTHER_DZ_SITE_NAME")
Approximate match of split DEs to LN 39 218 Not useful : Component to 26 CDEs (e.g. "Protein Component" and "Blood Component Transfusion Date")
  1. PN: Preferred Name, LN: Long Name, CDEs: common data elements
