BioMoby jMoby developers meeting – hour #1

In attendance:

Mark, Eddie, Wendy, Richard, Ivan, Andreas, Paul, Martin, Mylah

We started with jokes about the danger of having the core Moby developers in the same room of a brick hospital built on top of a geological fault…

Issues that come up:
Atrtribution of data to providers
– set logo?

Should the Object ontology have multiple representations for any given concept?
– e.g. FASTA and DNA Sequence are redundant…
– we need to find a way to encourage object re-use
– we need a “rule-base” to use the SeaHawk transformation rules rather than registering a new Moby object; or do we still need to register a new object?
