Subject RE: Including gene mappings in UMLS
Date Wed, 02 Sep 2015 01:40:31 GMT
Hi Chris,
We have not focused on the gene mappings because gene mentions were not very frequent in the
clinical narrative until several years ago. However, as genes/mutations and proteins have
become actionable items in both diagnosing and treatment, we do have plans to add a module
for gene/mutations/protein mentions in the very near future. We are likely to start with cancer
since that domain offers most actionable information and is consistently recorded in pathology
notes. Contributions are more than welcome.

Is this helping?

Subject: Including gene mappings in UMLS

Hey cTAKES community,

Is there any particular reason that you guys didn’t do the mappings

for genes (which exists in UMLS) - but doesn’t seem to exist as

cTAKES concept identifiers (CIDs)?

Are there any plans to include this in a future release of Apache

cTAKES? We were just wondering.

Thanks all!
