caCORE and Infrastructure

Many caBIG® tools connect to the caBIG® infrastructure through caGrid. Visit the caGrid Knowledge Center for more information.

NCI CBIIT has developed caCORE tools to provide to provide the building blocks for development of interoperable information management systems. Tools include:

  • EVS (Enterprise Vocabulary Services) for hosting and managing vocabulary.
  • caDSR (Cancer Data Standards Registry and Repository) for hosting and managing metadata.
  • caCORE SDK and the GUI-based caCORE Workbench, and associated tools for model-driven software engineering.
  • caAdapter - Open source tool set that provides model mapping services, and facilitates data mapping and transformation among different kinds of data sources.
