  • Beginning a project around brain projection and how BEL can be applied.


Shweta brought up a new project around brain projection which BEL could be a part of. An example given was measuring gene expression projected from one part of the brain to another.

The initial thought was to annotate the BEL statement with a brain projection vocabulary, but more research is needed to see if a vocabulary already exists. An annotation file can be put together and used within the OpenBEL Framework (tutorial). Initially this annotation will be tested internally and eventually evaluated for contribution to OpenBEL.

Going further Shweta will evaluate what functional terms and relationships would be needed for the brain projection project. We discussed making a proposal to the google groups (openbel-discuss) and request feedback.
