OSCAP Composer, bringing neuronal connections knowledge to the world.

The OSCAP Composer is a web application authoring interface that permits users to display, inspect, survey, and formulate knowledge statements about neuronal connections.

UCSD Sparc is a set of applications developed by the University of California San Diego that aims to provide a scientific and technological foundation for future bioelectronic medicine devices and protocols. One of the applications of Sparc is SCKAN, a semantic store housing a comprehensive knowledge base of autonomic nervous system (ANS) nerve to end organ connectivity.

To complement and maintain SCKAN, UCSD approached MetaCell to develop OSCAP Composer, a web application authoring interface that permits users to display, inspect, survey, and formulate knowledge statements about neuronal connections. This application is designed to replace a current workflow handled through spreadsheets and emails by the current team that involves triage operators, curators and SAWG reviewers to let the data make into the SCKAN system.

The application is quite simple and the goal was to minimize the implementation and budget for this application. The whole thing is based on the Django Admin prefab that I had the responsibility to customize. The final result is therefore limited in terms of UX by the prefab but it can be developed in less than a week.
