This very important and priority is here

Meeting with Pam
Today I had a very interesting meeting with Pam. The meeting turned around the work with David. From this meeting I concluded the following things:
The David's approach
I am thinking that David is working in his experimental project as if he was doing computer simulations, i.e. he is developing ideas in his mind and then he perform some experiments fixing conditions in the same way we do when working with a computer. This approach seems very appropriate to understand qualitative phenomena in biological research. For him exact protocols are not so important, because what is important is to uncover qualitative phenomena. However, once the qualitative has been uncovered it is necessary to proceed to some very careful experiments in order to calibrate mathematical models and in that way get some predictive tools.
I installed the Network WorkBench (http://nwb.slis.indiana.edu/) for networks research in my computer and it seems that this tool is good enough for some of my purposes. I will see.
