How To Participate
Prepare a Model for this Project's Model Wiki
The following is a basic listing of steps to prepare models for submission to this site: (I) Devise a hypothesis; figure out if it can be expressed in quantitative, testable terms If so, can equations be written to express the hypothesis more or less exactly? (II) If equations can be written to express your hypothesis, is the quantitative hypothesis used to provide model solutions that represent the data? If so, the model and data analysis can be published. (III) Can you make what you publish available to others by providing full sets of equations, parameters, and exemplary data sets to which the model solutions can be fitted? If so, then this model and the intellectual development it represents can be made publicly available.
Submit Your Model to the Model Wiki for Publication
Please follow the submission instructions on the NSR Physiome Model Page. For more information, please write to NSR Physiome staff to learn about other opportunities for sharing and discussing physiological models.
Join Other Physiome Projects
There are mutliple physiome projects around the world. Join the project that best suits your research interests and let the collaboration begin.
Take a Leadership Role
Volunteer to start a new project. There is a crying need here to lead or assist getting projects started in different areas of research. Developing targeted databases is vital to the overall effort. Since the targets can be at any level, and may fit within either a top down or bottom up approach, the simplest route to making an impact is to start from where you are in your research right now.
This Physiome Site should be Only One of Many Sites
Establish a Physiome Project-related site representing a field not hosted elsewhere. Those wanting to host a physiome site should define clearly what the site will do. Databasing, diagramming, and modeling sites are needed.
This is to help people use models in their experimental design and analysis. See developing tutorials for more information.
