Meeting Minutes 22 September 2005

Meeting Present: Poul Neilsen, Carey Stevens, Andrew Millar, David Nickerson, Sarala Dissanayake, Peter Villiger


Peter V: Finished decomposing the the Beard model - separate components for each models, about 50 components, works the same as before in mozcellml and matlab.

            SVG text in Firefox not looking the same as in inkscape or adobe. Carey to have a look.

Carey: Progress on the model repository. In development environment can now submit models and they will be renamed as per the agreed naming convention. Different model views works. Need to add search for related models display eg other versions and varients of same model. Need to add some stuff to portal_catalog to make things more efficient. All depends on Archetypes 1.3.4, so will need to update live site products too - might even go as far as plone 2.1

Shane: Developed a graph axes glyph in cmgui. Now available to be included in MozCellml. Example a/graph_axes.

Andre: Jsim people have provided a version that reads cellml. So we can now start checking the units of models in our repository.

Andrew:Been working on the mozcellml user interface. Made it simpler and now a single window. Still needs more iterations with users to improve design. Some suggestions more made. Perhaps a some example prototypes could by made for surveying opinion.

Sarala: Presented her work on visualising celllml models. Will in future use ontology databases etc, but at the moment has made a some output xml from such a database as a starting point. Then get the entity data from that and visualise the biological entities and connections using svg. Developing in Java, using Batik.
