Summary of Action Items
<scribe> new participant: Katie
<mscottm> Katy
<mscottm> Katy Wolstencroft
systems biology of micro-organisms
mscottm: metadata capture
... bioRDF work + computational experiments
<ericP> mscottm, could you paste the URL?
<michael> q
sudeshna: experimental context has most overlap
... most effort describing the experiment and factors
<mscottm> https://wiki.nbic.nl/index.php/2010_Symposium_on_Metadata_Capture
<mscottm> look there
<mscottm> differentially expressed genes vs. biological interpretation (pathways, disease change)
mscottm: idas - convert from mage-tab, etc, to RDF
<ericP> Lena: we used the @@a ontology for microarray normalization
<ericP> ... but for p-values and fold-change, i couldn't find existing statistical ontologies so i made up perls
<philippe> I think OBI has a few classes which could help
<philippe> p-value is definitely there
<ericP> mscottm: i've heard of a couple that were really basic
<philippe> and if things are missing, submissions should be made
rob_frost: genotype to phenotype aligment
mscottm: what type of RDF do we need for rob's example?
... beware of p-values without specifying the data analysis method
michael: genotype 2 phenotype usually captured as experimental factors
... mage-tab has a hard time handling multiple genelists
... but mage-ml would work
philippe: IS-A tab aligns with mage-tab
<ericP> weak!  (said referring to non-cvs approach to w3 note - not in response to what philippe said)
everybody "agreed" to edit the w3c note :-)
