Model Phenotypes

In the near future we will allow users to upload growth phenotype data. In it's basic form, this is simply whether or not an organism grew on a specific media.

Adding to this, we hope to allow for an number of complex phenotypes:

  1. Phenotype of growth of organism strains where genes have been added or removed.
  2. Gene-level microarray expression data on organisms and strains.

With these simple and complex phenotypes, hope to allow users to track how closely their models fit to observed results, allowing users to modify the organism model until predictions and observed phenotypes converge.
