Paul K Advisory board wanted us to explain AGR management structure and overall objectives better.
Paul S Will send the AGR SAB Staff Report to the group
In April NIH panel will decide what will happen after our 1.5 years of funding...... therefore we need a detailed implementation plan.
With respect to the April meeting implementation plan (1.5 years):. This should include not only what can we get done in the next 1.5 years (detailed), but include some info of longer term plans and challenges we think we will face. This sketch needs vision of the 5 year plan showing the cohesion of the AGR group members (common infrastructure and common curation efforts).
Working Group Updates for 1.5 year plan: The following gave perspectives/plans for the working groups on which they sit.
Chris G: Interactions
Daniella R: Gene Exprression
Ranjana: Gene descriptions
Chris G: Disease and Phenotype
Kevin H: Orthology: This group has achieved the goals in its original mandate. Will wind down and perhaps a group can move on to pralogs
Adam W: Said to let the architecture working group know if your working group needs assistance with infrastructure plans.
Paul S: Outside the working groups – think more about community Curation. Lynn Crosby from FlyBase has interest in heading up a working group dealing with community curation.
