What is the Phenotype KnowledgeBase?

Electronic medical records (EMRs) are becoming an increasing important source of phenotypic information for clinical and genomic research. Researchers create and iteratively refine phenotype algorithms using structured and unstructured data to achieve high positive predictive values to identify true cases and controls from EMR data. The Phenotype KnowledgeBase (PheKB.org) is an online collaborative repository for building, validating, and sharing electronic phenotype algorithms and their performance characteristics.  

On PheKB you can:


Phenotype algorithms can be viewed by data modalities or methods used:

  • ICD and CPT codes
  • Laboratories
  • Medications
  • Vital Signs
  • Natural Language Processing
