This API provides the ability to search using controlled vocabularies (i.e., NCIT) using our local repository for concept searching. It also provides intelligent clinical data searching of reports processed by the TIES NLP pipeline, the associated unique participant and sample identifiers are returned. Other services will be developed in the future to return the annotated report text.

Currently, this API only searches against our TCGA public node which contains only the publicly available TCGA data and returns the TCGA ID. The TIES demo gives you access to the entire publicly available clinical data set provided as part of The Cancer Genome Atlas ( We’ve loaded >10,000 cancer cases, including NLP processed pathology reports, accompanying whole slide images, and discrete clinical data such as treatment and outcomes information.
