Nigel Goddard, University of Edinburgh,
is working with us to develop NeuroML
a common representation for single cell and network models.
- The Systems Biology
Workbench project is a framework to enable sharing of
models and resources between simulation and analysis tools for systems
biology, and which will eventually incorporate GENESIS and the Modeler's
Workspace as one of the modules.
- Daniel Gardner,
Cornell University Medical College, has developed an XML representation
for neuroscience databases that has heavily influenced our own.
- Robert Cannon has
written a program CVAPP
for visualizing cell morpholgy files and comverting them into GENESIS or
NEURON compartmental model files. This will be used with the Workspace.
Erik De Schutter, Born Bunge Foundation, University of Antwerp,
Efthimis N. Efthimiadis, Graduate School of Library and
Information Science, University of Washington.
Gwen Jacobs and John Miller
have worked with us to include their model data for a reconstructed
cricket neuron into our database.
Jack Glaser, President,
At a recent meeting of the Workshop on Federated Neuroscientific
Information Systems, a proposal was adopted to make neuroscience data
available to the scientific community. MicroBrightField Inc. agreed to
act as a host and distribution center for neuronal morphological data.
They are collaborating with us and the University of Minnesota in
making their database of Neurolucida format morphological data available to the
Rogene Eichler West hascollaborating with us in
the development of a converter between
Eutectics and Neurolucida format cell morphology files to the GENESIS
format for use in our database of passive cell models.
Mark Nelson, University of Illinois, is working with us to provide
access to his database and storage system for time series data.
Emory University, has agreed to provide experimental
Purkinje cell spike train data. In return, we will develop
visualization tools for use with this data.
Ed Conley's group, the
Ion Channel Network is interested in creating a web-based database
of information from the four volume set "Ion Channel Facts Book", published by
Academic Press. He is collaborating with us in our development of a
database of ion channel models to reside at Caltech.
Malcolm P. Young, Claus-C. Hilgetag, and Gully Burns
of the University of Newcastle Neural Systems Group (http://york37.ncl.ac.uk/www/neural_systems_group.html)
have a database of systems-level connectivity for rat, cat, and
primate brain regions that they have agreed to make available to us.
- Andrew T. Ogielski, Bellcore, NJ
has worked with us on the design of the GENESIS server and database
interface to allow GENESIS to interact with the Modelers Workspace and
