We initially build this site as a means to document our own model. But working with the folks involved in OpenWetWare, we realized the potential power of allowing the community to use and ultimately run the site. Since this site contains a well documented model, members of the community can use the model encoded in the site as a well documented base model from which to make more specific models (see Instances of models). Thus users need only document their departures from this base model. More importantly, this site provides a forum in which different members of the community can discuss the evidence and weigh the likelihood of different interactions and mechanisms. We believe that open discussion of evidence will lead to deeper understanding of the pathway function and better computational models.
