Workshop on cross-referencing of terminologies

This workshop was held on 27-28 September 2012 in Paris, and was organised in the scope of  the EUCERD Joint Action (N° 2011 22 01), funded by the EU Health Programme, and Eurogentest2, a Coordination Action funded under the European Commission’s 7th Framework Programme.

Workshop objectives:

The workshop aimed to provide the community with standards to be used in order to achieve interoperability between databases, for two main purposes: making rare diseases visible in health information systems and proposing standards to the clinical research community for the description of phenotypes. This is crucial to interpret genomic rearrangements as well as future high-throughput sequence data.
