MDR Questions 
  • Meeting with Natalia, who is handling caDSR to MDR migration. Any questions I should put to her?
    • Where is MDR getting its EVS data? the EVS file dump for NCIt
    • What vocabularies does it use?  Just NCIt, for now. 
    • Expected lifespan of caDSR? 
      • Curation tool will shut down in ~August, when MDR goes up.
      • SIW will stay up and that uses EVS.  That provides files to UML Loader but that has no loader to MDR yet. Still unclear of future or scheduling
    • Is query that was breaking working now. Vikram working on it and doesn't think it has to do with communication with EVS. Not 100% reproducible. Huge biomarker Value Domain with 5000 objects attached to it. 
    • Do they want any hands-on help? Not at the moment.
