Table 3 A portion of the matrix of commonalities for the reaction canvas in the canvas sort user workshop activity

From: The Enzyme Portal: a case study in applying user-centred design methods in bioinformatics

Data items Group 1 Group 2 Group 3
Overall reaction   
Postulated mechanisms   
Evidence of mechanism   
Kinetic constants for various steps in the mechanism (organism and substrate specific)
Reaction in pathway   
Enzyme inhibitors / activators   
Literature information i.e. original paper and most recent work on the enzyme   
Bioactivity data    
Chemical group information (classification)    
Chemical compound information (structure, formula, etc.)    
Compound supplier information    
Safety information on this compound    
  1. This canvas illustrates the commonalities of the selection of data items by workshop participants. In this case only three groups agreed on a reaction canvas.
