Kei: (BioRDF) Looking at metadata especially in MAGE-TAB format. The metadata can be used to help users make sense of their data during analysis and link it together. ... there is a lot of microarray out there that could be integrated with Gene Ontology, pathways, and so forth.
Scott: I am very excited about these new developments bringing us closer to life scientists and their data.
Kei: Yes, there is a lot of promise and it will be interesting to see how this settles out.
Colin: I heard mention of MGED ontology. People at EBI are using EFO (Experimental Factor Ontology). Is Helen Parkinson involved in any of the work that you've just mentioned?
Kei: Yes, Helen has helped to look at ontological annotations of some microarray data sets, together with Maryann Martone to clean up neurological annotations for some ArrayExpress data sets.
Colin: It sounds like you're involving the microarray people from EBI, which is good.
Scott: Yes, we've been in contact with several people in the Brazma group as well as some in Helen's group such as Misha Kapushesky.
<egonw> sorry, I missed the last LODD call
<egonw> so cannot give update on that
Eric: (COI): Group just presented at the recent AMIA, still interest in access control
<egonw> LODD minutes of 11/25: http://esw.w3.org/topic/HCLSIG/LODD/Meetings/2009-11-25_Conference_Call
<colin> journal of biomedical informatics
Colin (TMO): We've actually started testing our ontology with use cases and using LODD data. Submitted to Journal of Biomedical Informatics
Colin: <describes sections of submitted paper>
Scott: What was the easiest and the hardest part of the work?
Colin: There was a variety of people with different angles and backgrounds which made it occasionally challenging to define requirements.
Scott: So, it seems that ontology was the hardest. ... What was the easiest? LODD testing?
Scott: Where to now?
Elgar: We have just scratched the surface. Will probably make some revisions when we are farther along.
Scott: Talked about recent EU FP7 grant proposal involving several from HCLS IG. Any other grant opportunities?
Kei: I've been thinking about submitting a proposal to NCBO as an R01 partner (biological application) for SenseLab. ... I'm hoping that such new grants will help to fund my W3 membership.
Scott: Can R01 grants involve foreign (EU) partners?
<egonw> but it helps to have US PIs...
<egonw> and since multiple PI NIH grant apps are still rare and new... a single US PI is prefered
<egonw> and liked the meeting *very* *much*
<egonw> my SWAT4LS presentation is available at: http://chem-bla-ics.blogspot.com/2009/11/swat4ls-linking-open-drug-data-to.html

<egonw> ha, slidy :)
<egonw> mscottm: thanx!
