Dear colleagues

The W3C HCLS Scientific discourse concall for Friday, Feb 26 is  
rescheduled to Friday, March 6, 11am-12noon EST.

Team members have been quite busy but I don't think we really have  
enough discussion material this week to justify a call.  However,  
things should start heating up next week.


1) We had some very interesting discussions at the C-SHALS 2009  
conference in Boston, particularly with John Madden (Duke University)  
who heads the HCSL Terminology Task.  We will schedule cross-group  
presentations in the near future.  Obviously discourse requires  
terminology, but not so obviously we have been thinking along similar  
lines in several respects and it is time to start sharing ideas more  
fully between the groups.

2) Last week several of us had a very useful discussion with Susie  
Stephens and Yimin Wang of Eli Lilly about the Lilly Experiment  
Ontology and possible use cases for integrating it with SWAN/SIOC/ 
myExperiment.  We hope to report on that discussion in next week's call.

3) Sudeshna Das's group recently demonstrated the pre-alpha of a  
semantically-annotated repository for genomic experiment data at the  
Harvard Stem Cell Institute. We hope to have Sudeshna report on this  
project and its relationship to Experiment integration with SWAN/SIOC  
in a subsequent call.

Kind regards,

Tim Clark
