XenCommunity

Under Construction. Edits and suggestions welcome.

Discussion about having XenWiki on OWW or hosted at [XenBase]

  • XenBase could set up and host a wiki for the Xen Community on its new server, or the XenWiki could be here on OWW. I justed added a few thoughts.

Advantages to hosting XenWiki on OWW

  1. Broader involvement with the non-Xenopus scientific community
  2. Xen Labs will learn about other work going on in OWW labs, esp. Synthetic Biology
  3. OWW has a lab-tweaked mediawiki
  4. very interactive scientists with many interests are managing the OWW site
  5. learning curve for wikitricks (editing, etc) is very good because of all the help and organization on OWW. This will help new XenLabs get wikified.
  6. don't have to cope with administrative and technical overhead of setting up/maintaining the software and hardware to run the wiki

Advantages to hosting XenWiki through the [XenBase] server

  1. direct links possible between Xenwiki and XenBase areas
  2. control

What should be on this wiki vs what is already on JGI and XenBase

Discuss and decide what we need so we can ask NIH, get involved with NIH "report" recommendations

  • notes from 11th Xen Meeting: Instructions for submitting a proposal NHGRC: see 'white paper' instructions on web site (need the link)
  • program announcement due Jan 18 2007, document on web site but applications that do the best produce a resource for the community and also do good science, US labs and non-US labs are considered.

Next Meeting

  • will be in Germany, details TBA
  • contact committee for ideas for next meeting
