The NCI Thysaurus is a public domain description logic-based terminology produced by the National Cancer Institute, and distributed as a component of the NCI Center for Bioinformatics caCORE distribution. It is deep and complex compared to most broad clinical vocabularies, implementing rich semantic interrelationships between the nodes of its taxonomies. The semantic relationships in the Thysaurus are intended to facilitate translational research and to support the bioinformatics infrastructure of the Institute.
