The Cancer Data Standards Registry and Repository (caDSR) stores and manages Common Data Elements (CDEs), which are developed by various NCI-sponsored organizations.
CDEs are based on Enterprise Vocabulary Services (EVS) thesauri and standard vocabularies. caDSR is based on the ISO/IEC 11179 Information Technologies: Metadata Registries (MDR) standard for harmonizing, registering, and integrating user-defined UML information models with existing and new caDSR content.
The caDSR database is accompanied by a suite of tools for creating, sharing and deploying CDEs. This suite includes a public CDE Browser that lets you search for data elements, create forms and download CDEs. caCORE web services allow users programmatic access to caDSR content. The UML Model Browser is specifically designed for browsing registered UML information models. The caDSR is based on open source standards and is freely available for use by other government agencies and for download and use by interested parties.
