Phenotype Harmonization


The Phenotype Harmonization WG will be responsible for defining data format and documentation requirements for Study Site and Affiliate Member-provided phenotype data. These definitions will be chosen to enable generating a Consortium-wide phenotype variable inventory and subsequent harmonization. The WG will also define data standards for Consortium-generated data (e.g., ontologies to be used for Consortium-harmonized variables). The Phenotype Harmonization WG will inventory existing data, coordinate and prioritize harmonization efforts, establish and document harmonization best practices, and define consortium phenotype data standards. As phenotype domain sub-WGs are established, this WG may also be called upon to refine or update PRIMED standards in collaboration with the phenotype domain sub-WGs.
