I'd like to suggest a broadening of these use cases in two ways.

(1) We have significant involvement (at least for now) from some  
people with an outstanding community web resource on Alzheimer  
Disease, the Alzforum (www.alzforum.org).  It seems a shame not to  
talk a little more about Alzheimer disease.  I think June Kinoshita  
might be willing to offer one or more very practical AD-related use  
cases.

There is also the Neurocommons project, with a strong focus on HD.   
My group, as well, works on projects in HD, Parkinson's and AD.  How  
dissimilar are these disorders in terms of the kinds of practical  
problems of knowledge organization (and content requirements) faced  
by researchers?  I maintain, they are not much different.

(2) I suggest we think more about what information would be most  
useful to scientists in determining what experiments to do, how to do  
them, and how to interpret the results. More practical is better.

Best

Tim
