Historically there have been connection issues with Vahid's ISP and google hangouts such that it is difficult to carry on a conversation, so we adopted Gitter. Sorry if I forgot to mention this earlier
In other words, what parameters do we need for an ion channel model to be run with the current simulation infrastructure we have @VahidGh do you think the list of parameters in models.py is comprehensive right now?
@VahidGh Our enterprise here is really to have something to optimize against, no? So maybe if we start with those three plot types only, get a path developed for the optimization using those and a few models, then iterate on top of that later with more plot types
but also have a clear path in mind for how to extend to other kinds of data
@VahidGh you're talking about the problem of re-curation. my experience is that re-curating the same articles is almost always guarenteed because in the early stages its really impossible to know what you're looking for
@VahidGh I can see your point about going deeply into an article since there is necessarily more information, and this will certainly eventually happen. Maybe my concern is just that we will spend too much time on each paper and defining data models for all sorts of plots
@VahidGh I agree that we should go with I/V and one of I/T or V/T because of inactivation ignorance. But that is probably enough for now. When we go through these papers we can always come back to them later and look for more esoteric plots (G, G/Gmax, etc)
