Susie Stephens, Davide Zaccagnini, Kei Cheung, John Barkley, Karen Skinner, Scott Marshall, Alan Ruttenberg
Apologies: Ora Lassila
- Susie: community outreach, trying to increase number of participants in the group, both on the ‘bed’ and ‘bench’ sides and to provide more data sources.
- Key: Gordon Sheppard, head of Senselab, might be interested in joining us and give ideas on how to reach other people.
- Karen: Gordon Sheppard is a prominent figure in neurosciences.
- Alan: came across uBio , interesting project
- Susie: we should get in touch with them
- Alan: will try
- Susie: we should reach out to people from pharma. Pfezier, Novartis and Elillilly can be contacted. Since NLP is now part of the BIORDF scientific publishers should be contacted
- Davide: Elsevier can be contacted, John Wilbanks of NeuroCommons is interested but not working on tasks, Tim Clark has interest in NLP to be defined. I’ll get in touch with them
- Susie: frequency of BIORDF calls?
- Davide: are technical discussions to be held in the general BIORDF call? If so biweekly is good
- Scott: would prefer biweekly.
- Alan: the Google calendar can help
- Others: concern about spam
- Alan: will look into these concerns and issues
- Susie: please update the wiki on vocabulary needs as Olivier is going to present the topic during next call. Any other topic to be addressed?
- Davide: we should start thinking how the different tasks are integrated
- Susie: before that let’s have the tasks rolling and then we can connect
- Unknown: the connection between databases and vocabulary is crucial
- Alan: agrees, is creating small customized ontologies for antibody methods and using Wikipedia URIs. URIs can be used just as databases primary keys only for creating joints between databases without pointing to RDF
- Scott: LSID can be used ……(dropped)
- John: URIs identify concepts, when a property links two URI that are not concept you cannot use object type property
- Alan: I define OWL concepts as NCBI entries
- Davide: we should all agree on this NCBI driven representation
- Scott: we could also insert coordinates in the URIs for single database cells, rows and clumns
- John: if we link URI to NCBI data we should use data-type properties
- Susie: URI are relevant and interesting for all of us, let’s put it as a topic in the next call. To be scheduled via email.
