Physiome Project

Each Physiome Project should have leadership consisting of:

  • Manager (or Management Executive Committee) will provide short and long range planning and coordination for the Working Group. The planning and coordination will include bringing the group leadership, the Special Interest Group, and Working Group members together at appropriate times, such as national meetings. Working Group leadership may put together consortium grant applications, organize symposia and meetings, workshops, and display booths. Training sessions for those wanting to learn integrative systems approaches to biology should be high on the priority list.
  • Model or Tool Coordinator will organize available models or tools, arranging for their evaluation when/where necessary. These coordinators will define the need for new and replacement modeling tools, as well as aid in determining which modeling systems best serve particular modeling problems. Collaboration with the Web-site Coordinator is essential to this position. This collaboration will ensure that the models and/or tools can be readily accessed, as well as to promote future planning. These coordinators will encourage the synthesis of new models and tools in order to facilitate rapid progress.
  • Database Coordinator will manage the databasing of models or tools, including parameter sets, data sets, schema underlying models, structural information, reference database, tutorials, and manuals.
  • Tutorial Coordinator will oversee the development of tutorials for the models or tools, so that overlap is minimized, content is clear, and referencing is appropriate.
  • Web Coordinator will work with the Tutorial, Database, and Model or Tool Coordinators to complete the model and its associated modules, including tutorials, reference databases, and exemplary data sets.
  • Project Members will include developers, reviewers, and organizers of any project elements.
