OpenWetWare

A wiki for capturing and sharing biological knowledge

Reshma P. Shetty and Jeremy Muhlich

This makes it difficult for newcomers to enter the field.

Solution: OpenWetWare

Examining Communication

Ethnomethodology: A sociological discipline which focuses on the ways in which people make sense of their world, display this understanding to others, and produce the mutually shared social order in which they live. (Wikipedia)

Systematization and Data Standards

  • Communicating with computers, not people
  • Rigid, one-way "conversation"

Literate Programming

Donald Knuth, 1981

Write programs primarily for humans, not computers

Existing Data Standards

  • MIRIAM - Minimum Information Requested in the Annotation of Biochemical Models
  • SBML - Systems Biology Markup Language

80-20 Rule / Pareto Principle

How do we communicate the final 20% ?

  • Verbal, email, etc.
  • Wiki

Conversation is robust, and necessary anyway

Agile Informatics effort

Wiki-based model documentation

with Brian Joughin, MIT/ICBP

To be integrated into OWW

"Living" Models
