|Stage (its dominant reasoning)||% completing this stage||Description|
Scientists vetted query results and the tool for accuracy, reliability, and timeliness|
Example: Look for familiar literature references.
|Separating Wheat From Chaff (classification and validation)||85%||
Scientists classified relationships to find genes and protein interactions of interest|
Example: Locate an interaction between a candidate gene from experimental findings and a gene product known to be associated with a disease
|Beyond Read-offs (Model-based reasoning and validation)||0||
Scientists wanted to place relationships of interest in local and global contexts to mentally model explanatory biological events relevant to a disease.|
Example: Contextualize significant regulatory relationships in pathways.
|Story-building (narrative reasoning and validation)||0||
Scientists sought to turn explanations about biological events into new, credible and plausible biological stories.|
Examples considered to be credible were not available based on scientists' progress.
