This deliverable covers one of the specific objectives of ADOPT WP3 Task 3, namely the development and deployment of a toolbox to support the mapping of data attributes/value lists, biobank meta data as well as clinical case/sample description attributes to a central core terminology. The necessity of such a mapping toolset is due to the non-comparability of data from different sources. Every partnering institution usually refers to a particular data scheme adjusted for its own use. This

In order to avoid this pitfall and to ensure the interoperability between data sources, a toolbox will be developed. This toolbox will provide the software components that will support the mapping of the biobanks' existing data on an agreed upon common terminology for the purpose of data harmonisation. The report outlines the specifications and functionalities that are considered essential for the mapping/harmonisation process. Moreover, the development of the first prototype of this toolset will be described.
