  • Moving forward with LEGO-style annotation:
    • Documentation
      • Between now and end of November, we will work on documentation for:
        • Using the tool (start from existing videos?)
        • Philosophy behind LEGO-style curation (introduction to the process, how it differs from current curation paradigm)
        • Specific examples of curation
          • Single paper (maybe from an annotation consistency exercise)
          • Conserved pathway/textbook example (glycolysis)
          • Up-to-date view of a biological process (using summary figure from a recent paper or review as a starting point, annotations derived from multiple papers - sometimes this is easier for curators to model)
    • Roll-out
      • Early December? Will need to put together some possible dates and see what works
      • An in-person meeting with representatives from each group currently annotating with Column 16, and others, if funding permits
  • Issues for discussion
    • Use of TAS and NAS to create reasonable biological models when evidence is either not annotated yet or not available in the literature
      • Think about how this would be visualized by users to be clear on what is known and what is proposed by authors
      • Should TAS annotations point to a particular paper in With/From column? Could the PMID in the With/From column be used to fill-in annotations in a LEGO model?
    • Cross-species and cross-tissue modeling
      • Is used in biology, but our current annotation model doesn't quite handle the representation of these types of inferences
      • New evidence code?
      • Refer to other annotations (using stable IDs) to document reasoning - inter-model evidence
      • How often does this occur? What is the pragmatic solution for handling this?
    • Highly specific vs general models
      • Curation will likely happen on the more specific models, but we can use that information to develop a more general, or common, view of a biological process
