Signaling demo February 2010
From GO Public
The signaling working group gave a demo of the new graph to all from the consortium who wished to attend. We also had some outside experts to view the graph and in all it was about 30 people watching on webex and listening on the conference line.
Many good questions were asked and Suzanna Lewis raised a question about splitting the part_of and is_a graph into different hierarchies by use of grouping terms rather than just different relationships. This question will be taken on to the managers' call as this style of work is common throughout the process ontology.
One new outside expert has agreed to join the group as she has a great deal of knowledge of the glutamate signaling pathway and will be able to help to develop a really good ontology structure. She is Anita Bandrowski (abandrowski at ucsd.edu).
The conclusions of the meeting were:
a) Jennifer Deegan should commit the graph to the live repository in the week beginning 8th February 2010.
b) Jennifer Deegan should write some documentation on the standard structures.
