Here are the notes (with Joanne's help) from last Tuesdays BOF at ISMB:



Eric Neumann (slides attached): 
- Presentation of SW background and Current Activities
- Potential areas of further development for life sciences
- What else should we address?

David states:
- wrappers are layers away from the data.
- what are best practices for citation and provenance?
- seamless integration is plagarism.
- Must drill down and get credit-- need for papaer-trails.
- No standard (nor implementation) for obtaining provenance with LSID's.  
- Need to create best practices to ensure it is a standard.

To make sure the original source is available, push and pull 
techologies can help.

- RSS is a good idea for data updates, tool updates, etc.
- Urchin and PRISM and connotea from NPG are relevant for provenance.
- How to migrate between different versions?

   RSS 1.0 is RDF.  
   RSS 0.9, 2.0 is XML.
   Converters exist (such as Dennis Quan's)

- How is metadata updated? Not in LSID specification; needs to be defined still

- Semantic Web for Life Sciences at PSB 2006 Call for Papers.  Mid-July for deadline.

Dennis Q:
- XML has this (metadata, structure versioning)) problem, too.  

Gary Bader: 
- How do we solve the ID problem?

David States:
- Named ID's and text don't necessarily refer to a database entry? CAn be concepts or abstract entities.
