  • rvosa Rutger Vos, Bioinformaticist at Naturalis Biodiversity Center Ok, so the first action item is to find a different term for 'use cases'. Do you want to do a requirements gathering for that or shall we be more agile?

    But seriously, would you be interested in working from an outline with different contributors working towards an edited volume?

  • rdmpage Roderic Page, Professor of Taxonomy at University of Glasgow @rvosa I guess all of the above. Phylogeny would be a useful central hub, around which could be linked all the layers of annotation that we'd like, which lead us to cybertaxonomy, specimen databases, literature data mining, etc. 'Use cases' is a phrase that makes my blood curdle, I tend to think more in terms of 'wouldn't it be cool to be able to do this' or 'I want to do this' I guess this is the same thing as a use case, but without the 'lets have some meetings and endless discuss stuff without actually doing it' bit ;) 2 years ago

  • rvosa Rutger Vos, Bioinformaticist at Naturalis Biodiversity Center When you say broader than phylogenies, what do you? Biodiversity informatics? Cybertaxonomy? Phylogenomics? All of the above? Sounds fun. For sure it would have to be an e-book, I agree. I suppose a robust, usable interface to a phylogenetic database could be one of the use cases in the book, perhaps as a way to discuss different back end solutions ('Big Data', NoSQL, etc.), though I'd love to see more use cases. 2 years ago

  • rdmpage Roderic Page, Professor of Taxonomy at University of Glasgow @rvosa I think a book would make sense, provided it is also online, and broader than just phylogenies. I also think it would be fun to have a book that is built round actually making something. Like, dare I say it, a usable interface to TreeBASE ;) 2 years ago

  • rvosa Rutger Vos, Bioinformaticist at Naturalis Biodiversity Center I don't know if a book is such crazy talk: Bill and I have also been talking for a while now about a practical phyloinformatics book (with comphy materials). Maybe the time has come for such a thing. 2 years ago

  • rdmpage Roderic Page, Professor of Taxonomy at University of Glasgow Oh and yes, the map metaphor is straight from the VizBi talk 2 years ago

  • rdmpage Roderic Page, Professor of Taxonomy at University of Glasgow Yes, I did a v. quick outline of how you draw trees in 2D, then 3D. More notes on course web page http://iphylo.org/~rpage/phyloinformatics/course/geography/index.html#geophylogenies . Part of me wants to write these nots up further into an actual, like book, but that's just crazy talk. 2 years ago

  • rvosa Rutger Vos, Bioinformaticist at Naturalis Biodiversity Center What's the last bit with the rectangular tree on the grid, is that just how to draw cladograms? Did you talk about how to compute coordinates for geophylogenies? I like your metaphor of geographical maps (and how many visual conventions we have for those) versus how few we have for phylogenies. That was in your vizbi talk as well, right? 2 years ago
